Thoughts In Time

What’s It All About

'Whats It All About'

 

Oh Lord-

if i knew

what this

was all

about-

maybe then

my heart

wouldn't

be so full

of

doubt-

 

the endless

ticking of

different

clocks-

unable 

to stop

the

racing time-

unanswered

questions

of the

mind-

 

in searching

what do

we

really find-

a rhetorical 

question-

a pantomime-

its all

hidden-

in the 

minutes of

time-

 

emotions

are there-

but do

we dare

scare ourselves

with the

truth-

burying them

behind fake

smiles

and laughter

so sought

after-

the hollowness

inside-

consisting of

selfish pride-

too scared

to face

the truth

of the purity

of our

youth-

 

humble yourself

and come 

around to

the doubt thats

all around-

but return 

to the 

'self'

that you've

now found-

spinning around

in the 

seconds of

the minutes

of this fragment

in time-

and then 

i can grasp-

that its

a selfless

task-

that each

must 

pass...

    It's all about Me, Me, Me - who said I was selfish?! I'm the most unselfish person I know! Heehee.
