Time and Glass

It seems that time takes every second of our lives and encases it in a coat of glass.

We can still see it, but we can no longer touch it.

Once the glass shatters, that memory is forgotten and ceases to exist.

It all seems so unreal to look back on memories.

To think that once we die and everyone who knows us dies,

every piece of glass will be broken into shards that no one can see.

We really then cease to exist.

What can we know about those who lived before us?

Can we name their quirks and passions?

The things that drove them and the things that broke them?

The first time they loved and the first time they cried?

They are forgotten faces, replaced with new generations.

Soon too will we be forgotten.

      1. I started blogging just this February. Before then I was writing poems on Tumblr, but found I didn’t have as much freedom as I wanted for organization and layout. WordPress is much better! I feel like I have a real website now and not just another social networking profile.

      2. Yes. I feel the same. We have far better choices here in WordPress, there’s millions of blogs abnd pages to read, people to meet and great learnings. 🙂
