The Urgency of Time

Billions of years.
Our molecules acquired.
This rock floating through space.

Molten lava embraced.
A magnetic core has bore.
The life we all negate.

An urgency of time.
We face waiting in line.
To tell our story and learn.

To find our glory and burn.
The ego we maintain.
I was on this pebble like you.

Wanting you to know.
That I loved you.
That I tried to live free.

You might pillage through my files.
Maybe find a word to help you heal.
The pain inside from losing faith.

This truth you will soon relate.
That alone we come and alone we go.
I leave you these words so you will know.

That I thought of you often.
That I fought for your future.
In the urgency of time.
