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.
