Ticking, Ticking, Ticking Away

The ticking clock
Upon the wall,
Tick tock, tick tock
Time seems to crawl.
It would seem a shock,
To one and all
To know that the clock,
That circular nuisance on the wall,
Was invented to simply mock
And thus the true meaning of time is lost to all.
Time is not limited to this life or that clock,
An entire day is truly a second in eternity and will fall.
It will fall from the memory, for it can not truly imitate
Although it attempts to mimic eternity, and deceive all.
The mocking clock,
Shall fall!

As a child, my father always used to tease me, still does actually, that my mind would seem to leave me every once in a while. He would tell me that i seemed to be a shell of a girl with a sobre expression… A most serious soul… And so, the name sobre child was born. I always saw my soul as a kind of butterfly. Flitting about from one thought to another, depending only upon my own determination of imiportance. I am me. I am myself. And I am sobrechild.

    great! it’s amazing how we feel guided by that little thing. I know it drives me nuts at work lol somedays it seems to magically fast forward, but most days I swear someone put that clock & time on pause

  • LOL! I know what you mean! It goes too fast when you want it to be slow, and too slow when you want it to be fast! Thank you!
