Time makes fools of us all

You cannot outrun it, cannot change it

Let yourself ride the wave it places you on

It may push you further out beyond the sea

Where the difference becomes obvious to your mind

To make more of what you are

Let science take you beyond the limits of thought

Let them use their golden mechanical parts

Choose to make a difference

Stand out from the crowd if that is what you need

Wheels within wheels moving space, changing time

We turn; we spin our way through life

trying to keep up with the machines

Let them rebuild your broken body

Become the inner man you were meant to be

Let your mind tune in to the wonder that is you…

  1. What a cool poem. I think it captures the potential of science to enhance our physical lives as long as we still retain our ability to make positive heartfelt choices. Wonderful job, Anita. I’m looking forward to sharing!
