A quiet morning resonates a soul like stones dropped in clear water.

There I sat staring As every color flew by Oceans of madness
Time. People. Dreams.   Times change
Mr. Clock, why are you so mean? Every time I'm havin fun time flees, Yet every time I am unhappy you won't leave. Mr. Clock, your hands are evil, They control me in every way.
