100 words for November.


November’s the cruelest month for some.
A time for reflecting on past mistakes.
A time for choosing best whatever comes.
A time for regretting squandering ways.

Why do we age in the way that we do?
Time stalking us, tick tocking down our days
To a point where we’re agonized against
some tide, gulping breaths, drowned in solitude.

If only we’d circumvent this some way,
Fear less on this journey and strike some mood
Of optimism, a voyage we knew
We should sail joyfully every day.

Time judges the value of our lives spent
Mourning days lost or embracing events.
