Counting Time


Time basically, is a linear line,
Yes, a linear line of rotations,
Traveling none stop for you and I.
This has been my thesis, my dissertation,
So as to speak of; my theory on time and space.
The moon rotates around the earth,
And as the earth rotates, this is one day.
Rotating around the sun in a free fall,
One year is formed as we make a full circle.
In other words, simply put, one cycle of rotations,
A journey around the sun; time in motion!
But it does not stop there, you know?
Around and around the Milky Way here we go.
The Milky Way rotated as it travels,
Into the scope of an endless void of dark,
Which only the stars in space light the way.
When the rotation of all things comes to a stop,
Then time will no longer hold its power of rotation.
The linear line of rotation will cease to be,
And time will take on a new form, a new motion.
Time will equal infinity constant squared,
And I will be there to do the math counting time.
