--Maple Grove, MN
I am past my time,
I should’ve known more.
I should’ve realized
There isn’t any more.
The beauty of nature is to surpass evolution,
A task I wasn’t up for.
If only I could challenge Grandfather Time,
I’d fight for those I adore.
I have taken a step back,
A step in need of recovery.
My last wish is to see mine succeed,
To have minds opened with discovery.
It’s too late for me,
I hope this isn’t my only time around.
I wouldn’t carry so much on my back,
If I only had another time around.
