Time - Poem by Bullion Grey

Since Time doesn't exist, you can't waste it.
Time can never be 'lost'.
Time can't be saved.
We can't 'look for Time'.
None can 'find more Time.'
We cannot 'make up Time'.
Time can't be 'burned', 'compacted' 'slowed' or 'stretched'.
Time can't be stopped or 'stand still', or be 'held up'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Time seems like a constructed utility based on memory (past) , observation (present) , and imagination (future) through the faculties of Perception.

In fact, even 'now' doesn't exist. We see & experience everything in the brief past mathematically. It is said Light travels 186,000 miles every second. If we are about 3 feet apart of each other, it means it takes 250,000th of a second for Light to travel from each of us to the other. Which means we see each other slightly from the past. Thus 'now'has never existed. So we're left with only past, which exists only in memory and the future which exists only in imagination. Both being 100% unreliable.

    And it does exist. Time it's the fourth dimention. Just like height, length or width, it does exist. (Report) Reply

    Depending on the speed you travel, time do slows down, or so they say. (Report) Reply
