Magic Potion


We have tried the magic potions,
solutions in jars and bottles.
Snake oil
Alchemy
(Just like new!)
Lies and pretense,
all of it.

Time is the enemy.

It takes a leap of faith
(and fortune)
to take the next step,
traverse the secret divide
into forbidden land.
Here we must deny,
(pinkie-swear),
assign the little changes
to God’s love
and nature’s fortune.

But the hand of man 
weighs heavy here,
for when promises and elixirs fail,
the only way to borrow time
is to buy it.

This is a Three Word Wednesday post.

That sounds like bribery and without any guarantee of success. Let me know if you are successful.

I can buy time? Can I get it in bulk? Where?

@Alice: Time can be bought in bulk, but it's safest to buy it in small increments. People are less likely to notice.
