Take this instant

Poetry By: donkylemore

all the moments we've all wasted on utterly pointless things
which angered and stung
and wounded and hurt .
if we could gift them to someone better disposed to use them .
The giving of an instant to one wracked by pain of cancer or the desolation of depression .. just to give him one of your painless moments. None of us show out appreciation for ant time that's free pf pain, anger , envy , hurt .
Its like the day you have the toothache .. you look at all the people who dont have tooth aches and think '' how blissfully simple their lives are !!

Take this instant !
Form me
Take it this instant
And change it if you will , from the bleakness of dark night;
Into a flare of comets soaring through the firmament.

Take this moment that I know
I do not deserve .
But know a thousand would
Dearly live it - To live in some small moment of respite
With out the excruciating fear or pain , of ravaging disease

Take all the hours I have wasted
And hoarded , brooding on some rueful wasted thing
And live them if you can with a wild abandon

Too well I know the poor ; the destitute of
Despair; and their paucity of pleasures
Too many are their squandered instances .
Like me . And mine

But take this time
And use it afresh and without the baggage
I've borne down on it .
And use it ,Without a backward glance

And let it be a rapturous vibrant ,venture of delight
As in its incandescent movement as it blazes
Through the dark ; with a searing joy across the night
Till dawn comes again by increments and phases .

Let it rage with radiance
Glow, and bring warmth where lies the frigidness of soul
And may it bring soothing breeze where rage and tempers flare.
And fan the tired brow of he who toils under the beating sun

But I feel -You too have moments just like me !
( in fact I'm Sure!)
And I hope you lived them to the full
Each as it deserved to be;
And don't waver on
Each one small crotchet ; one small quaver
In that concerto
Before that last curtain and the final lull.
