“Father Time” is NOT:
the gentleman I thought he was,
as I timeless as I thought,
kind to 30-year-olds, or 50-year-olds, or 70-year-olds.
He was kind to 40-year-olds!
40 was my best year in human terms,
and that was many years ago, truth be told.
But, who tells the truth about age, anyway!!
My conclusion is
“Father Time” is an evil, man-made idol
To steal from thinking minds,
Taking away their ability
to perceive the beauty of
the timelessness we really live in.
If a believer is given
Eternal Life through
the creator of time said,
the only measure of time is
He, God, the Father who
Does not slide down
a tower in a ball of lights,
dressed in white robes with
a staff and a long white beard,
sent His Son to free us,
Free us from Time so we
Can live forever in
Therefore, and hereafter,
numbers don’t matter to anyone but people.
That makes ME timeless!!
One thought on “Forty or Timeless?”
I like the sentiments expressed in this poem. Age is just a number!
