A Poem to Celebrate Sweet Release by Amanda Hester

A Poem to Celebrate Sweet Release by Amanda Hester
October 14, 2018 No Comments » Uncategorized Amanda Hester
On November 15, 2017, I  released my newest short story here, Sweet Release. In Sweet Release Holly walks us through her last day alive, a short life that felt entirely too long. 

Scarred Arms of Time

Amanda Hester
Time is not always kind
Bitterness prances in its wake
We oft’n feel left behind
 
Each goal will be outshined
Leaving memories that ache
Time is not always kind
 
Playing tricks upon our mind
Weaving slow heartbreak
We oft’n fall behind
 
Time laughs at our decline
And counts our each mistake
Time is not always kind
 
The past for which we pine,
A thirst it will not slake
We oft’n fall behind
 
Parallel, linear, intertwined
It’s a journey we all take
Time is not always kind
We oft’n fall behind
