IT AINT OVER TIL ITS OVER - Day 800 and Counting Down

Blake offers a nice poem for our perusal to launch the countdown to December 21, 2012...

Poem: "It Ain't Over 'Till It's Over" by Blake4d.

Original Post Featuring The Poem (by Blake4d): (day) 800 and Counting Down on the 800Days Blog.

 (my interpretation/explication of)  It Ain't Over 'Till It's Over:
Blake has offered this poem in two line pairs, 4 concepts overall, whereby the 2nd line (lines 2, 4, 8) of the pair acts as commentary for the 1st lines (lines 1, 3, 7) or concept lines. An interesting thing happens in the 3rd line-set (lines 3 and 4 only), whereby Blake questions the reader... then returns back to the statement and commentary format.


Line 1: (Concept) "Nothing is written in stone" (concept, permanence)
Line 2: (Response statement) "Something that may not happen"

Line 3: (Concept) "Nothing is inverse and inevitable" (concept, helplessness within inevibility)
Line 4: (Response statement) "Something is waiting for us every day"

Line 5: (Question) "So why is everyone waiting on Doomsday" [?] (DOOMsday)
Line 6: (Question) "What reason do we need to make darkness day" [?] (darkness)

Line 7: (Concept) "As time is spent watching over your shoulder" (concept, fear and apprehension)
Line 8: (Response statement) "Remember this it ain't over 'till it's over"

Moreso, the responses are HOPEFUL responses to disturbing concepts...

Line 1 concept (permanence, futility of making changes)
Line 3 concept (inevibility, building upon permanence)
Line 7 concept (fear, "watching over your shoulder" the result of buying into the permanence, powerlessness, features of "the inevitable" that make us powerless)

Overall... I very much appreciate the responses because they are ultimately HOPEFUL...

It's Definitely NOT OVER 'Til it's OVER!
