The unstoppable foe

Onward marched the army without end
No force can stand against its steady might
Whatever man may start to comprehend
This army always stretches out of sight

Behind the wheels that mark the way it passed
The eyes of men continue not to see
The battle is not lost until at last
There’s nothing left for man to try to be

Each soldier as he passes has a name
He marks the steady passing of a life
The battle weary seconds aren’t to blame
For leaving us to wallow in their strife

The time is marching all the while we live
Please use those seconds learning how to give.
