No More Rely On - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

The dawn wakes up
With crowing songs of cocks
The Sun puts on its dress
For the journey

People are on the hop
To end up the day
The Sun doffs stepping in to the cave
People offload the burden for a relax

I, you and they want to
Pass the day, week month and year
For goals, aims and hopes

How long have I done
How long have you done
The same phenomena
Without fighting with the time

In day today sense
Dawn wants night
Night wants dawn
The Sun and the Moon help for the process

Without having realized
I forgot the risk and danger
Just played with the time
May be you are

Ticking sound of the clock
Has come to struggle with me
Day, night and in every second
I am threatened reminding the past

I know now
I want to fight
To block and to stop the time
I am afraid of the time

The day and night
With the help of the Sun and Moon
I was gagged
May be you are

I want to come out of
I am afraid of the time
No more rely on
May be you are
Perhaps they are

    Beautiful written, I believe the time run chages its pace in function of our perception.... no matter how slow or fast it goes we cannot stop it. Not without dying. No need to be afraid, love the time, it will love back... To hold happiness forever what a challenge, might be as hard as to stop the time..But not impossible, isn't it? (Report) Reply
