Seconds - Poem by Ken Bennight
I'm life among all that is dead,
my first of name is reason.
I'm silence in sound of all thats said,
forever changing with the seasons.
You cannot know or understand,
the punishment I've been given.
The toturios life I have lead,
the slaves that I have driven.
True to me I'll always be,
dancing in the shadows.
Felt by all but never seen,
a pleasurement of all mens dreams.
Measured only by the screams,
in the horrorment of children.
My numbers you see everyday,
you count them down,
but alas I stay.
I'm the only thing that life has given,
to you and that is why your living.
And when your gone I keep on giving,
to all the rest that keep on living.
