Time Ticks


Northgate High School, Newnan, GA
United States
Slow like the morning sun rises
The hourglass frozen
Dawn passes a slow horizon
Time develops motion
Knowledge and wisdom grow at noon
The center of tme reached
Shining like a beacon in June
The meaning of Time breached
Religion held tight by sunset
Hourglass almost bare
The apex is here; do not fret
Time ticks there's none to spare
Dusk has come a thief in the night
Time ticks; complete life right
