Sitting in the vastness of time, a lie, so grime-
Yet sometimes we hurry up in time
Slowing time with moments that fill us-
Warm lustful sand, pristine sea muss-
Speeding our hateful divine-
Benevolent as our time is define
Controlling time as we fly prime-
Cherishing time as rare as lus
Sitting in the vastness
Aging to what degree of another swine
Holding true what isn’t true like a shrine
Calculations making our time a fuss-
Lies we live in what time confines like a truss-
Living in one of our greatest lies and inventions: time..
Sitting in the vastness

About this poem

This poem encompasses what we truly hold ourselves too as we live our forever lives. This poem is brought about how we hold time as the true standard of expectancy. For when I needed to attend a meeting, it really brought me to question what time really is.
