Passing Time

By: pencils.and.paper.roses


A curious thing 
Passing slowly, passing fast
       Moments of joy,
    moments of sadness
      Increasing in age
Clocks ticking away the hours,
     days, months, years
           and then
            the end.

Peer Review

The length was definitely a great contributor to this poem. It was short and sweet and like a dagger to the heart. The simple honesty worked extremely well in this poem- ".... and then, the end.". A simple ending that captures the entirety of life perfectly: there, and then gone.

It would benefit the poem to expand upon a more variety of moments. Moments of life don't fall into only a handful of categories; yes, there are highs and lows but their are also moments of anger, pain and elation etc. More lines would help this poem but would take away from the short-and-sweetness of it.
