Time

In Poetry by Neville0 Comments

I’d like to have a talk with Time Tell me its story Why does it exist? What’s in it for me? Does it understand its power? Does it even care? Why is it so mysterious? Why does it not share What is coming tomorrow And after that? Who does it answer to? Is God concerned that Too many waste the …
