The Changing Chimes Of Time

Yes I let it go
my words will flow
cutting time in two
into seconds from minutes
from the hours, even days
turning time inside out
so it is no longer real

Take me away to reason
where time is a myth
a fifth season, a place of nonessence

Time falters, flakes, falls, flutters
fetters away into oblivion
Like everything known to man

T - All TOMORROWS are never to be
I - In my INNOCENCE, My IGNORANCE
M - MANIPULATIONS of mind
E - ENUMERATION, numbering my way to eternity

    Great description of our entanglement with time, leaving so much thought.

  • Chandra Thiagarajan (7/31/2013 12:28:00 AM)

    A marvellous poem, telling that time and tide waits for none! The acrostic at the conclusion is the hall- mark of the poem!

    You fight against the time. The time is past, when we are happy to remember. Present when you move forward and is future when you still can planning.
    He gave you all this and still give it. Is your job. Give
    But he has to charge you and reminds you (what should have been done) , and forces you to do again what you did not learn and gives you another chance to rebuild life in the right way.
    So time to pay what is owed. Make the three connections and get off at the station of your future.

    Time is a constant, but always in motion, dragging each one of us into oblivion!
    Time is a great teacher, but unfotunately before we finish learning, he kills all his pupils! So beware of him!
    Never take him for granted!
    A great write, especially the acrostic at the end! !

    I enjoyed reading this poem as time waits for no one and we can't escape that. Perhaps eternity is different.
