I Have Walked... (8-17-04)

I have walked into the ocean
and realized the depth of time.

I have walked among the clockwork
and wondered why it never stops.

I have walked slowly forward
and discovered how to change the future.

I have walked quickly backward
and missed enjoying the present.

I have walked silently away from the ticking
and answered the call of silence.

I have walked at night inside my brain
and questioned my sanity.

I want to walk on the clouds
and feel what its like to be free.

    the last stanza is kind of saying that i want to be free of the entrapment OF time... does that make more sense now? :)

    Nice poem. Your metaphor of time is lovely. Reconsider the last stanza. You left your metaphor behind. The poem would be more effective if you stayed with time.
