Time’s Ticks

Each tick of the clock

Counts off a second of Time

While the silence inbetween each second

holds its own eternity.

 

I will not be swayed by the

Baseness of Time, leaving

Lines across my face and

building creeks inside my bones.

 

…when memories, daydreams and

concentrated wills can create

and construct a future of

my choosing … before Time’s ticks

can even think about what will happen to me.
