What Is Time?

Time passes by ever slowly
Every second is an eternity
Waiting forever impatiently
Oh Lord, what is time?

Forever I sit here watching
All things moving past me
Time I cannot understand
Oh Lord, what is time?

Everything seems to linger
I sit here restless, waiting
Wondering how much longer
Oh Lord, what is time?

Always remember one thing
God has no concept of time
Created by man long ago
Does time really matter?

    Wonderful... simply wonderful.

    There also came a time that I was really tired of waiting... that i seem to realize im waiting for nothing and it just seems to be eternal... eternal waiting drives me crazy... and it hurts.

    nice poem 'bout time.All i know 'bout it is that it's something that when wasted, you cannot recycle anymore.. (Report) Reply
