Time? Poem by Shalom Freedman


Time?
It is not a question of Time
I have Time
A year, five, perhaps ten, perhaps more-
It is not a question of Time
It’s what I can do with the Time-
I have had so much Time
What have I done with it?
Why do I think could do better now?
It is not a question of Time
All the years and where am I?
Whatever time I have left
Where can I get?
What can I expect myself to do,
That I have not been able to do in all the years?
Not Time
What I am and what I can and cannot do
That is the problem.
I have Time
But I do not have another me
That I can be-
Whatever it is it is
Whatever I am I am
It is not Time
It is me
Only me.
