Glimpse

Glimpse

.

Turn off the screen.

Its stealing everything that matters,

Stop arguing.

Whether strictly or X factor’s better,

Have you seen?

There’s a world outside your living room.

Its name’s a farce.

You’re not living,

But decaying

While you stay.

.

And all that we know

Will dissolve into the night,

We’re but glimpses of a time

Where we can cast a light.

And there is little that we know;

It stretches far too long,

Our books and eyes can’t comprehend

The history that we belong to,

.

So close your eyes.

Feel space and time.

Glimpse life.

.

Turn your eyes.

They’ve been distracted for far too long,

It’s beautiful.

Realise it’s where you belong,

It’s not too late

To take the glimpse that’s gifted to you.

You’ll never live

The whole of life

But just don’t waste

What you can.

.

And all that we know

Will dissolve into the night,

We’re but glimpses of a time

Where we can cast a light.

And there is little that we know;

It stretches far too long,

Our books and eyes can’t comprehend

The history that we belong to,

.

So close your eyes.

Feel space and time.

Glimpse life.
