The Blink of An Eye


Time is a bit cruel
It wishes for instantaneity
But cannot stand for naivety
Pphffttttttt

I wish for time and to make peace with time
I wish for time to forgive me—
Please grant me eternity please!

But I am here and I have chosen to be here
—and leaving is not an option
(nahh yet)

So, I must make friends with:
       all that is in the jurisdiction of time
       and all that is offered by time

So that—
It is not time that is at peace.
But I Am.
So that the wind can rustle through the feathers of bamboo trees.
