Time Alone

Straight Shot ~ Philip Brent Harris


Are we contemplating our days of future past?
Do we think anyone will remember us at last?
Study us, analyze where, when, why we ended,
discover how we died, greatness we pretended.

Will they applaud us as the sun, moon and stars.
view us like the finest horses, fastest race cars?
Discard us as useless detritus found in an alley.
Never, ever discovered in royal tomb or valley?

Are we seen mysterious, mean, cruel, cunning,
base, at bottom of the list, not in the running?
Will we be a future scholar’s goal, life’s work;
Lost, swept aside by flood, skewered by a dirk?

Yes, we dream we will be heroes, great leaders;
the stories recorded in history for avid readers.
If we are right, we’ll possess all the essentials.
Yet only time alone, will craft our credentials.


People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,

Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment

Unite the World!
