Time over time!

Time only measures the past,In equal parts of good, bad or different.
We watch our children grow,
Time spares not one.
Our ageing measured equal.
Softness of the young soon gone.
Adolescence runs out of steam. 
Blemishes appear all to quick.
The grey mane lasts a time.
Memories shorten like a winters day.
Dreams appear with less meaning,
Why do we cloak them in stealth?
Status means nothing in life’s race.

The rich, the poor, silently collude.
Time can wait for not one…
