Trigger Warning

Are we
who we were
and will be?

Today dashes past unnoticed.
Memories form bridges
connecting now with then.

Time pushes from a shore.
Life jumps constant hurdles.
Opposites pull us

forward, backward
upward, downward
nowhere, everywhere.

Matter and anti-matter
collide in constant flux-
Forever changing-
