Count Down

Count Down

Life is time collecting memories of the choices made
To who or what
power is given
How the heart beats
and bleeds
To birth creativity
through body
or mind
To sacrifice here
and take there
When to stop and dream
and when to wake up
and build
Whether to tread water during a storm
or go quietly down below
Moments captured and kept
wrapped warm in our minds
Limited treasures
For our clocks are ticking
and we are all counting down
though some of us forget to live
and instead
count out loud
