Time is a Ghost

time-is-a-ghost

Time is hanging on to a pendulum,
shuffling between now and then,
moving back and forth.

Its is a ghost of past,
protected by future,
that it would engulf for sure.

Feeding on our present sins,
it won’t, let us come to terms,
of our finite lives,
it’s going to clock us infinitely as it pleases.

Time is like a ghost.

It is there with us for all time. We can not forget it's presence.

We are reminded daily of past, present, and future.

Nice one.
