To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.


Time
A thing so
strange and
mysterious
nobody knows
how it works
what
forever
really means and
why
no one here on earth
can control it
at all.
Time is
water
slowly dripping
from a
leaking faucet
Time is
water
sweeping everything
in its path
away
rushing down
the side of a
mountain.
Time is
water
cupped
in my hands
and
no matter
how hard I try
to keep it in
it's still
slipping
out the cracks
that are invisible
to me.

I can't remember it clearly, but it went something like this:

"The past is the past, the future is the furture. But now, now is like a gift, which is why it is called present."

Thank you for your comment! I like this poem.... Great job! I'm going to read the rest of yours when I'm less bussy :)

Feel free to give me more advice on my stories/ poems. I could really use it!!
