Pause

The child becomes the man
and,
the man carries the child.

The future becomes the now
and,
the now grips onto yesterday.

The moment grows into a life
and,
the life unravels in a moment.

The end just another beginning
and
the beginning simply an ending.

The pursuits we sacrifice for
and,
the sacrifices we will pay for.

The pause that creates a bridge
and,
the bridge that forges new ways.
