Time

I am the beginning
I am the end
I am everything in between

I have no beginning
I have no end
I am the cycle, again and again

I am birth
I am death
I am the life you live

Never enough
Always too little
Too much of me to kill

I am before
I am the tutor
Witness as the future passes

I am the mystery
I am the history
I am the wise turn to madness

I am the sand
The creation
I am the wave that pushes progress

I am the flame
The destruction
The calm and freezing darkness

An inspirational poem about time and its many variations. I particularly enjoyed the last verse. A beautiful write.
