Running Out Of Time


“22,000 days,”

they said,

“its not a lot, its all you got,”

they said*,


“25,000 days”

he said



both affirm

our time will run out

some moment of some day

will see our final breath

what then with us


whither what we are

no more a choice

but a result


seconds tick by to death


have you chosen well?



* Moody Blues, Long Distance Voyager

** Moses, Psalm 90


Inspired by “God Help Me” by Rebecca Saint James

from If I Had One Chance to Tell You Something
