Timeline - Poem by Simone Otto

Time, is like an
Ocean in a storm.
It is unpredictable,
It is deadly.
You cannot change
The past, nor the future.

It is written,
It is foretold.
It cannot be undone.
It is what lies before
Your feet on the path of time.

Time is like sand in a
It is blown away,
Though is always there.

It trickles through
Life’s fingers.
Slowly, but surly,
Trickling to nothing,
Dying in the hands of the Universe.
Crying dry tears
As hot as the desert.
