Just Jot It January: Time the Enemy

Time flies past at supersonic speed

It takes no prisoners indeed

Through tree tops and sharp brambles

It skips fast and rambles

It slows,  for no one

Tarries, not too strong

Not stopping

Moving

On.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time was her enemy  time  was her hate

She  was determined to destroy it before it was too late.

Time was always rushing her, stealing  her days

She  sought  to defeat it in thousands of ways

Fighting it hating it  always  a chase

Sadly she never won, it always ended in disgrace.

Finally she could  assail time no more

So she took it and beat it  and smashed it to the floor!

    Time is one thing I can neither understand or describe but you did quite a justice jotting this one down.

    Nice video! When we immerse ourselves doing something we really love, time disappears, so really it’s just a perception- neither friend or foe. 😉

    Time doesn’t care about you. You can do what you want, it presses on anyway.
    Good one. Again. ❤ ❤
