Please Don’t Waste Your Precious Time

Such it is with precious time
Governance and enterprise
The greatest gift
But some do squander
In confrontation, altercation
Arguing with fanatic fools
Dogma filled with one obsession
No consideration of rejection
Universal truths deemed unimportant
Only victory of their beliefs and illusions
Evidence to them appears nonvisual
Common sense comes with a slight
Perhaps the fault lies in their doctrine
Being taught how consequential
Singularity often polarized
Leads to broken understanding
Hatred festers, resentment pollutes
But worst of all, the ego blinds
When being right is all that matters
Volume rising with the distance
Anything to gain the edge
Animations, undulations
Subject shifting, blithering
Fingers pointing, clampering
Sinking lower, angrily
Closing in, then narrowing
Such as pointless arguments
Extremist, cultist, acolytes
Already claiming unearned glory
The eyes reveal it, as does the lore
Precious time, too much wasted
Take your leave, and future wit
For, as ignorance screams
Intelligence must goes silent
Peace and tranquility are worth much more
Allow the zealot claim their triumph
Preserve your health and high vibration
There’s no need for continuation
And lowering your worth, tis insulting
Save your energy for something noble
Walk away from apathy
Share your time with someone deserving

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
