Reflections of Time…

It is my worst enemy, my best friend,
It taught me how, with heart to contend,
It showed me, the joys of life,
It helped me struggle, past my every strife.

It gave me failure, gave me tears,
It gave me success, threw away fears,
It taught me, what to say and when,
It showed me, how to fight till the end.

It gave me hearts, to love always,
It gave me hope, during troubled days,
It gave me riches, fortune and fame,
It taught me to share, the very same.

It gave me grit, to come out of my shell,
It made me get up, whenever I fell,
It gave me life, when I was about to die,
It showed me dreams, helped me soar in the sky.

It brought me down, when I was proud,
Yet showed the silver lining, on the cloud,
It gave me memories, to treasure very dear,
It gave me courage, made my goals near.

Every passing moment, I wish I could see,
Every grain of sand falling, reminds me,
That every minute I lose, I cannot regain,
Time, a mystery, I try to solve in vain.

Time, a mystery, I try to solve in vain.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  8. Beautiful poem meaningful and rhyming! It is odd that you should write a poem about time I am working on the problem of time only by understanding time can we have the chance to understand anything. I believe there is a link between art, poetry and science this why my art an poetry blog is about quantum mechanics.
