Featured Review on this writing by hullabaloo22

Like little magnets upon a cracked ball of steel


The sounds of mirth 

And a child’s birth

Wealth ever growing 

A mighty mind never slowing 

Of their own course are drawn in

Following suit to faith and sin

The unavoidable coalescence


Siphoning bright effervescence

With bright dizzying resplendence 

The sound of aging’s a whisper, at first 

A status for which young minds thirst 

But leave it alone, and soon it’s a roar 

You’ll start to wonder why you haven’t done more 


We owe it to gravity that we’re held on this rock

And we measure our lives with glances at the clock 

The force that holds us atop the crust

Is the same force that will turn our bones to dust

We live our lives, with a purpose to be found 

And in enough time, we’ll return to the ground 

So while you can still stand against gravity 

Make sure your idle time’s more than a cavity
