The Time Speaks

The Time Speaks
by Inro Lavil


Humans, humans
Why do you blame me for things undone?
Why blame me for the rising sun?
For its setting?

Humans, humans
Why mention me when things go berserk?
Why mention me if you became a jerk?
To what you're becoming?

Humans, humans
Alan Parsons and Roger Waters sang about me
Inro Lavil, stop writing me being not steady
Why are you wondering?

Humans, humans
Why blame me if you can't cope up with me?
Why blame me if a thing occurs and you aren't ready?
What's with the blamings?

Humans, humans
You think I'm evil for not counting you
Yet you're counting me. How unfair are you?
What are you pointing?

Humans, humans
Why grumble and go bitter on my flow?
Hated me for being too fast and too slow
What are you saying?

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Here I go again. Can't stop myself really
I really possess sense of humor you can't see
Why are you crying?

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Look at yourself, you look damn miserable
You were strong, now, yourself is unbearable
Is that the so-called ageing?

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Yes, I can be counted, also can be numbered
Within these digits, your memories are scattered
Is it me you're referring?

Tick, tock, tick, tock
There are many January's and December's
Many of which you can still remember
When will you stop whining?

Humans, humans
Inferior beings, sinful creatures yet loved
Blaming others, well, me, also God above
For their shortcomings

Humans, humans
Stop whining, I just flow smoothly
Inro Lavil, stop this poem already

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
