Time Pieces

Thu, 10/12/2017 - 00:16 -- MaryOs

We are all ruled by time

Our life ticks away

Seconds, minutes, hours at a time

We all begin wound

Our cogs meshing and turning

Just simple time pieces

Ticking away

Freat clocks and wrist watches

Unwinding as we approach midnight

Our cogs loosen

Our chimes quiet

And our ticking silent

It's odd such complicated pieces

Cease in the simplest of ways

We each have our own time

Some faster

Some slower 

Can it be kind

As our midnight approaches

And as we unwind

Our cogs loosen and we realize

We defined the length of a persons life

It's funny

Simple Time Pieces Are We
