My Stasis

Updated on September 22, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

I am in stasis,

Neither moving forward nor backward,

I observe the world around me,

I analyze, I ponder, I wonder,

Time is ever present,

It withers away ever so slowly,

Running away,

Just out of my grasp,

Can we even catch time?

We are caught up in its rules.

How can we win such a game?

Time is undefeated,

Still in stasis,

Collecting knowledge,


Biding my time,

Fear strikes,

The unknown gives an edge,

Shivers up and down my body,

More analyzing,

I watch the time past by,

Time drags me with it involuntarily,

Time wins again and again,

Consequences unknown,





They plague me,

They disable me,

This stasis,

I must overcome...
