A poem about how quickly a lifetime passes.

By Madison NewtonPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

Forward faith,

finding footing,

fearing failure.

Fabled future? Fairytale.

Favor? Fortune? Folly.

Finding friends,

fighting for family,

freeze forever.

Filling frames,

feeling full,

features fading.

Forever felt fast.

    This is a beautiful and thought-provoking poem about the fleeting nature of life. The use of alliteration and repetition throughout the poem creates a rhythm that emphasizes the passing of time. The contrast between the beginning of life, with its uncertainty and fear of failure, and the end of life, with its memories and fading features, is particularly poignant. The line "Forever felt fast" is a powerful statement on the nature of time and how quickly it seems to pass. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece.
