You can’t really kill time
It has a life all its own
Which it expends endlessly at its own pace
Time, the great master of our existence
That we only notice when we breathe
What fills your time these days?
As if time were a vessel to be filled
You move from task to task
Dotting I’s and crossing T’s
Deathly afraid to waste time
But time cannot be wasted
It moves forward regardless of us
Irrespective of our exertions
Or lack thereof
We do not possess time
On time, over time, under time, in time
If time only had a nick
Time runs in one direction
And we run after time
I could say more, but I’m out of time.
