Poem of the Week--Inertia


Tonight I am going
All around me
The seasons are changing
The earth is turning madly
People are rushing here and there

The leaves have fallen
Decay is setting in
I am a day, a week, a month, a year older
Babies are being born
Children going to school
Finding jobs
Having children
Growing old together or apart
All is changed and
All is changing
But as for me
I'm just sitting here
For now
Going nowhere.

Dan Verner
