Minutes broken down into moments That float by on the lazy river of time

The Weight of Time

Minutes broken down into moments

That float by on the lazy river of time

And I trudge, bent double

Under the weight of the future.

One day, I again will stand

Not buried under time left to be spent.

The future is a heavy burden

That I carry on my bent back.

The past, dragging along behind me

Locked around my ankle,

Like a life long punishment

That weighs me, bent.

The present falls like minutes

Dropped from the sky.

I will stand to my full height

declare myself, no longer a prisoner of time
