The Sand falls to the Ground

The sand flows on the side of the glass

Quietly and gently on the stand

No one knows what it indicates

Other than the fact that it represents responsibility

Keeping track of the events that is yet to come

Plans for the future that have already been set in motion

A method to satisfy

A method to resolve


Seven months to believe that all of this is true

Six months to come up with a concrete answer

Five months to receive the same plastic flowers

Four months to be reminded of tomorrow

Three months until the sand hits the ground

Two month until an object falls

One month until time comes to an end


The sand lies on the ground

Looking at the empty horizon

Waiting for someone to turn the hourglass again

But in the world of silence

Nothing can reverse the effects of change
