I sit and stare Watching as every grain falls away

Hourglass

I sit and stare

Watching as every grain falls away

I sit and stare

Asking what's there to life with every falling grain

I sit and stare

Asking what secrets lie within these sands of time

I sit, but this time I wonder

if the next falling grain brings hope to life

Clock's ticking, I sit back to relax

Sands falling, I clear my mind to hear my heart

Every minute passes me by, it's a moment to ponder

Reflections on my actions, the consequences that will seek to haunt me

But what good is this if I sit here another day

Ephemera it may be but life wasted if I regret my steps

watching as life ticks and trickles away from the grasp of man

I wish to see another day

So I sit and ask

if the next falling grain brings hope to life

I take a moment to sigh, so let my breath whisper my weakness

Tired from the daily routine of life

A hopeless endeavor lived for self

Ambition they say but what good is it if led by greed

if primary becomes secondary and secondary becomes primary

roofing replaces foundation and pillars become ruins

because surely chaos will pay you a visit

hence I know not a building of such design that stands the test of life

so I'll sit and ask

if the next falling grain brings hope to life

I'v been sitting in this chair for far too long

Least to say, my mind feels a little bit too far gone

Seeking for answers before the end of time

For when time ends judgment awaits

Will memories be our tombstones or will they be our well built thrones we'll one day sit on

Seek ye first what lies in the kingdom above

Let the gifts be secondary , let foundation be the basis

So u may sit and know

That the next falling grain brings hope to life
