The Time Thief by Rhonda

From this day until the next
The Time Thief hides the key.
She will not let you find it, no,
She will not set it free.

She knows a truth
An idea in fact
That time withheld
Is time held back.

And yet we know for certain,
That time is just a thought,
A momentary reality
Of something that was sought.

If one chooses another way
A difference becomes our truth.
Reality is just a sentiment
Of someone else’s view.

So let it go, set time free,
Time is the truth
Of your own reality. . .

as an afterthought:

Even though we are told, taught, made to listen & believe what others say, their own interpretations of what they consider to be the truth or facts of what might be, there is always another choice, idea, way of understanding. . .
So let it go,
Set time free,
Time is the truth
Of your own reality
. . .

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…
