Me Time

Some lament, I am too long and seem like eternity,

Many complain that I am too short, and wonder about my uncertainty,

I neither expand nor contract and run in perpetual motion,

Me, crawling, creeping , walking or running, its all your silly notion


Stories of emotion and of devotion, all ending in big commotion,

I stood witness to all right from the day of human evolution,

I do not rest and stand still, I flow unhindered forever,

I am always fleeting and will be so, past, present or future.


I can’t be bought even with billions of tons of gold,

Yet,, I allow you to adjust and make me mold,

I am the maker of moments and memories,

I turn foes in to friends and friends in to adversaries.


I am omnipresent, omnipotent, yet invisible,

In all human lives, I leave my mark indelible,

I do not wait for anyone, always on the run,

Some misuse me to lose and some use me to win.


Humans equate me to the ticking of clock,

I leave imprints on the journey that humans embark,

I may seem bright or I may look bleak and dark,

I am immortal, my wheel keep on rotating in light and dark.


I am the cruel dictator, I am the determiner and evaluator,

I am the material factor, I am the string that pulls you in life’s theater,

I am both the destroyer and kind benefactor,

I am me, me time, the great annihilator and also a creator.
