Everything does decay in time
and new must replace it.
I watch as the world cycles through life
ever changing around me.
Often I wonder who changes more
me or my surroundings?
Sometimes it seems I stand still
time progressing onward without me.
This a blessing and a curse
to see empires rise and fall
and good deeds go by the wayside
Banners are lifted and heroic efforts are raised.
Yet here I stand, feeling timeless and lost.
Waiting, constantly asking,
Was I born for a time such as this?
The answer returns, the time to act is never tomorrow…
