A Good Poem I

On the Strength of All Conviction
and the Stamina of Love
Jennifer Michael Hecht
Sometimes I think
we could have gone on.
All of us. Trying. Forever.
But they didn't fill
the desert with pyramids.
They just built some. Some
They're not still out there,
building them now. Everyone,
everywhere, gets up, and goes home.
Yet we must not
Diabolize time. Right?
We must not curse the passage of time.

Wow. Where'd you find that? That's some good perspective, I'd say.

Great! It goes by too fast to curse it!
