Your Time Now

Your time is now

Be comfortable in your skin

Skin bears the marks of experience

Be at home in your body

Bodies change like earth’s landscape

Your mind will play tricks on you

To see if you’re paying attention

Love will blossom in new ways

Learn well the rhythm of your heart

Your choices are yours alone

The path is uncertain

Youth is fleeting

    Love the way this flows both ways, and the profound messages you get across in so few words. Great topic for an inverse! “Skin bears the marks of experience” is a fantastic line but also such a healthy way of looking at the world. Well done👏😊

  • This is intriguing! I’d almost like to try my hand at a similar theme but don’t want to steal your ideas. Very cool!

    Reads well both direction, good idea youth to age and vice versa. We seem to blink through each stage. One minute one, the next the other. Great poem.
