If We Could Bend The Hour-Work Back - Poem by Gert Strydom

could make events, deeds and words undone
then this could perhaps have been a better world

and everything would have been timeless and reversible
and heartache and pain would have been able to be bended right
and it would have been possible to create a heaven on earth

but we are caught to the thing
that makes everything older,
that bends our lives
to be trivial and but mortal.
