Time claims all fools who rebel Against its tireless march Rebel we must Rebel we will Raging for the one thing That transcends the ages Stories of love for the ages Stories for love for us A promise offered in words A promise bound in gold With the words I do With the words I love you There is no telling where the story ends When we are writing each day Each day we will write it Each day we will make the most of it One day when we are not here anymore Hopefully they will tell stories about us How much we loved How love is supposed to be Today and today never tomorrow And tomorrow’s that will never come Now is what we have Now is what we will never waste
Today’s experimental poem is inspired by Horatian Ode.

Outstanding write. The last two lines of each stanza are the most powerful. Keep it up.
