Free-write poetry.

Once again, I’m sitting here
Like a trained puppy, waiting.
Time passes, laughing as it goes,
Knowing it controls my life, all life.
But if it didn’t, then when would we know?
Where would we go? How would we make it?
We need to get a chance to break free, and take it.
We need to realize what is happening, realize it’s insane
Realize that we can’t go on with our daily lives, living this way
Where will we draw the line? When someone realizes,
How we’re living throws away, the beauty of a day
Makes a second seem insignificant to all
It throws our back against the wall,
We are restrained once again
Facing time, as foe not friend
So let this battle, begin
Once again

  16. Digged it man. The rhythm was cool and I liked your poignant thoughts on time particularly how it rules our lives. Ridding our lives of time would certainly be fascinating since there is no way to know the ramifications of that
