This Time

January 31st, 2003 | Category: Poems

What we want from this time
Is to see beyond the sublime
To more than live, but to feel alive
And never cease to strive
To be more than a metaphor
For all the people who came before
To leave marks and traces
Evident on our peers’ faces
To know upon leaving one day
That we’ve proven there’s another way
To be, to do, and to thrive
To more than live, but to feel alive
