A Trip Down the Walking Road

by Jeffrey T. Bender

A trip down the walking road,
A path through the great unknown.
Where one life ends,
Another begins,
And so the story of time doth spin,
On and on,
Through thick, and thin.

A contemplative mind sits,
And revels in a tale of wits,
Atop a stump, and in a place,
Where no line shall define,
The flowing river of space and time.
And ever there shall he sit, defying a universal law.
And from his mouth, every now and again, shall emit,
A startling truth, "Time does not exist."

I was born in 1986 in Mtn. Home, Idaho. I began writing poems at the age of 15, my freshman year of high school, in 2001, with the poem 'Mind Decay'. Mind Decay is a 14 line Shakespearean style sonnet about the capabilities of one mind to alter the world. Some of my poems are love based, but many others are based around grand themes such as revolution, or space exploration, or alternate realities. Much of my poetry is fiction with an underlying message of reality tucked in.
