Acknowledgement

Poem By Barry Conway

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I WANT YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE,
THAT THE STORY HAS A TWIST TO IT,
FOR NO STORY, HOWEVER WELL-PLANNED,
FOLLOWS A TRUE AND STRAIGHT PATH!

IT IS BY ACCEPTING THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT,
THAT YOU WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND THE ENDING,
FOR THE ENDING WILL ONLY COME,
TO BE OF ANY TRUE WORTH OR MEANING,
ONCE YOU HAVE PASSED THE THRESHOLD,
OF ACCEPTANCE AND UNDERSTANDING!

THERE ARE MANY STORIES,
YOU NEED BUT TO LOOK,
TO SEE IT IN EVERYONE'S EYES,
FOR WE ARE ALL SWIMMING UPSTREAM,
CONSTANTLY TRYING TO NAVIGATE,
A TIDE THAT IS PULLING US DOWN!

TIME IS LIKE WATER,
IT FLOWS THROUGH OUR HANDS INCESSANTLY,
WE TRY TO HOLD ONTO IT,
FOR AS LONG AS PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE,
KNOWING ONE DAY THAT WE WILL EXHAUST IT,
JUST AS WE OURSELVES ARE EXHAUSTED!

YOU SEE, THE STORY IS YOU!
THE STORY IS ME!
IT IS EVERYONE, EVERYTHING, ALL OF US,
TOGETHER WE TRAVERSE ALL THE TWISTS OF LIFE,
FOR NO PATH IS SET IN TIME,
JUST AS NO STORY CAN EVER REMAIN UNTOLD!
