Every Friday I'll post one poem that I wrote. Here's my poem for this Friday.
A billion stars in the corona of the mind
Is but a second in the deadly span.
A thousand leagues on every side
Leaves a wayfarer searching for the path.
Ten million strings are woven by the Fates
But not a one is longer than Lachesis' whim.
Six hundred coiled knots confound each birthing cord
But never more than one sees the other end.
There are a trillion forks in the path
Each with a hundred billion branches.
Sixty beats a minute tick the rhythm of our day
Until the halting shuttering stop of the last hand.
You could be anything,
Do that intangible wonder,
Or steer a smile in a sea of tears
But you only have one chance.
