Time

 

I sit here all muddled,
Thinking of the time long lost.
Thoughts swirled and huddled,
As I contemplated its cost.
Is it time or light?
To pass with such speed and blight.

Tearing people eternally apart
Plunging lives into darkness
Fate carries on its part,
As I struggle in this vastness.
Is it time or light?
To pass with such speed and blight.

I was once a little boy
Burdenless, and wide-eyed
Cocooned in love and joy.
Fate struck, pushing lives aside.
Is it time or light?
To pass with such speed and blight.

Time, it is said,
Helps forget our pain
And joy, it could have led
But entrapped, I cry in vain.
Is it time or light?
To pass with such speed and blight.
