Clockwise - Poem by G. Akanji Olaniyi

Nature is an orderly ensemble
Time is a non-stopping pendulum
Makes me think; we are going round and round
Similar to clockwise
The seconds runs fast to the minutes
Minutes are just too close to the hours
The hours’ being counting centuries gone
Continuous and irreversible
But life refuses to stop
Against the count of my time
Your time
Our times
All irreversible
And clockwise!
