~ Poem by Sandra C. Obiora (28.05.2018) ~
Today, I wished dearly for time to pause.
I yearned earnestly for just this cause.
That I may simply hold onto this quickly passing moment.
If only to make it slower, to grab a hold of it and shout, Pause!
I have realized that we are never truly satisfied with any one stage. We must evolve.
And so I ask myself.
‘What have I achieved this year, last year? These last few years?’
I can say I have achieved plenty.
In fact, plenty is an understatement.
However, plenty is an overstatement.
And so I give all glory to my Father in Heaven. The one and only true God.
For in these years I have met many, celebrated many, I also have also been celebrated by many.
I have recognized the face of opportunity; I have kissed it, I have hugged it, I have refused to let it go.
Now I realize that I cannot rewind to the past.
Now I believe that time flies by fast.
Yesterday is gone, today is far spent, and tomorrow is right here.
Still, even if my heart chooses to waver, I shall never fear.
For life occurs at different ages and stages.
And in no time, we wind up with so many pages.
Each line you find within is a day that soon ends.
Each page added within
Creates chapters and a book that never bends.
