When stress begins to take control.
Begin to think of time as whole.
Streams keep flowing as you think,
And death takes men with every blink.
One foot in fire; One in ice.
Arms outstretched in depth and height.
A child dies within the womb,
A flower dances in it’s bloom.
Love’s first kiss on nervous lips.
Flying birds and sinking ships.
Midnight, midday, they are the now,
Awake, Asleep, a death, a vow.
What are we but selfish beings?
Emotions flow immediately.
Perspective points of different seeing,
Stuck not in time, in sensory.
If I were time I’d laugh and cry.
In every second I pass by.
With focus on each lone event,
A flapping wing, a final breath.
Stress all you want and waste the day.
The trees don’t stress, they only sway.
A butterfly lands on a child’s nose,
And time holds more than what you know.
