We live moments

Breath in, breath out

We all do it

There’s no way out

We think life on Earth

Is eternal, or we want it

To be so

So we believe, so we make it

Death is roaming around

Waiting to be told

Who is next

Who shall not have

Another breath

In or out

It’s only one breath

It’s only one moment

That which stands

Between us and death

We can’t make it longer

We can’t make it shorter

And we wonder:

Where do they go?

As if we shall not

One day go

To where they do go

We live moments

So waste no moment

It’s all you have

Treat your moments

Like you would

Your own money

Or even better

Money comes and goes

Moments only go

They never come back

In this life

When the time comes

Regret won’t remedy

Our injured souls

At all…

    The difference between your new and first English poems continues to increase. In this one particulary I really liked your manipulation of words, it successfully manages to give the poem the right mood of graveness and solemnity. Example: Instead of saying It is only one moment that stands, or which stands you said That which stands. It makes a difference I assure you, it gives Eloquence and can touch the emotion of the reader much more effectively…well at least I am talkin about myself. Same thing when you said: As if we shall not one day go, instead of saying won’t you used shall not. The lack of abbreviations always makes the writing more ‘serious’ so to speak, you know using have not instead of haven’t. Also in: To where they do go, instead of where they go, the do affirms, assures. And using remedy instead of heal is also a nice twist. I enjoy reading such writing and writing is as well. I suppose its the genes xD
