Father Farther

Years are man's measure
to order we must align
they post signs
along roads which infiltrate our minds
you clutch to the comfort of these measurements
and count the days
as though you can hold on to them
but they are gone from you and me now
I might be a memory
of a baby in arms
a child quickly running
stumbling away from you
life was so full and you had so much to do
thirty years have come between us
and man plows the Earth
year in and year out
the soil is turned
the drones now fly and kill
the screen blinks on and the wheels are turning faster
across a world made of metaphors
we grapple for a connection
and the truth is a silent hollow vacuum
filled by our intentions
