Tick Tock

Day and night, tick- tock
The moving hands running past
Every stolen moment counts
I need time to stop now
Alas! My clocks are slowing down
Can’t someone wind them up?
Cruel time waits for none
Someday all my clocks will stop.

Self-defense

“Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?”

 

“I am wrangling to vitalize my soul. I don’t believe in protracted verbosity. However, circumventing the genesis that belies my credence cannot be the panacea. I agree, an altercation is perilous but I would rather risk being vanquished than metamorphose into fancy-pants.”
