Poem #13

I have time on my mind
Right now, it is my enemy
Moving me toward pain
Not wanted or needed or even understood
But in an instant
In a single moment
Time will turn and befriend me
I will be moving toward something
Wanted and needed, but still not understood

Time is your frienemy right now. It will be good and bad to you...I guess it's like that for everyone, though.

Geez... that is so right on. We will both survive, I know. Every day is one day less. Time is like quicksand. But the reward will be great!

(Cool how I include myself in this huh? I know... too self-involved.)

Time is such a good/evil thing. It never goes fast or slow enough, depending on what you need.

Interesting poem LB with a curious ending. You turn time from being just a measure of life's elapse to empowering it, calling it your enemy. Impressive!

Churlita: Yes, I'm sure that is true. We all have our time based issues.

Ananda: haha! No, I like that when people relate with what I write! Just wish I were in your position right now. sigh.

MrManuel: Exactly. I just want to make time my bitch :-)

FW: I tend to personify a lot of impersonal forces in my mind. I think it helps me feel more in charge.
Thank you!
