A Battle with Time

The clock ticks away like
It doesn’t give a damn whether
You make it or miss.

Its allegiance is hitched
To everyone or everything else –
Never with you.

So you wage a war against it,
Defying its natural flow,
Keeping with your own rhythm.

You never win.

  1. So right: never do win. At least not yet. But I keep thinking in the future they might come up with something to really help us defeat it for awhile longer than usual. Turtles live like 150 years. I think cause they move so slow. Maybe that’s the key to something. Slow and relaxed life. A good collection of words as always.
