A Sunrise in Subjectivity

For the fellow who wallows in inconsistency,
Time becomes the trending emphasis
and he fails to address the irony it holds

Delving inside the midnight sanctuary
replies with the same limited benefit
and its learned that watching the sunrise
isn't always so beautiful

To meet it with rested eyes
is like catching up with an old friend

To meet it while restless
is like watching old friends come and go

A day grows undefined
Through the evanescing fine line
Until all that's seen is the passing time
Leading one to wallow in inconsistency

It's funny, really
