Countdown


It all seemed so far away yesterday
But the clock isn’t standing still today
The minutes speeding by faster than fast
The time is closer and what can I say

Mayhap a farewell to all that has past
For that moment is in my sight at last
Good bye to the person I used to be
To all the memories that held me fast

For the time has come for me to fly free
Embrace the future that I want to see
As now I know there is no other way
And a man must forge his own destiny

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
