Time passages

From past to present

Picking up precious cargo

Some carrying baggage

To be left as waste

Along the side

Other parcels

To be locked up

Till the appointed time

Still all to be embraced

None left out

What does it mean

All this travel

For it seems we go backwards

But all the while

Moving ahead

Pressing toward our goal

Of being whole.

Once again I reach the top

Only to find there is more at the bottom

That needs to be looked at

So many to hear

So much to see

They can’t be forgotten

Their pain ignored

It happened before

But not now, no more

The young ones cry out

To be held,

Comforted,

Made to feel safe

To be protected

So as I stand at the top

Hearing their cries

Feeling their pain

Holding back the tears

Once again I descend.
