Time heals nothing

Time heals nothing
it merely passes

What time offers
are infinite possibilities
for anything
for everything

for breaking or mending
for pretense or authentic living
forgiving or resenting

So don’t believe the lie
that the passage of time
will make you or your life
more sublime

Awake, watch out, do your work

you’ll get more anxious
you’ll get more stuck
if you sit around and wait
time is short says the clock
tick-tock, tick-tock

you’ll get more peaceful
you’ll get more free
with every opportunity taken
to become present and stay
in the time
that is given

Life is for living
here and now
quack says the duck
and moo says the cow
