Good evening ladies and gentlemen. After a week break, the Friday Night Poetry Corner is back! This week, a sensational poem called “Borrowed Time” written by Samuel Jack is a piece of honest creativity that will leave you wanting more. I am not exaggerating. See for yourself and after you do—

I told you so!

Samuel Jack.

there is a place
i want you to go
let me take you there
you’ve got nothing to lose
a breeze in the wind
a bird in the shadows
catching your attention
as you wander
through the
woods between the
trees over the
river and past the present

the moment is
fleeting never to be
caught never consumed
only ever thought about
as a past event
for how can we enjoy
that which has yet
to happen
all we can do is embrace the
now forget about the then
and just allow the when
to catch you

don’t waste your energy
in pursuit of it
let it come to you
after all
time is linear
set in stone
it will come regardless

go back to that
path in the woods where
the trees cast long thin
shadows upon your
face and on the trail
you are following
enjoy the sensation…
