When you are born,
time is nothing but bright and dark,
day and night.
A constant progression
of on, then off.

Then comes school
and time becomes
hour to hour,
five days followed by two days,
nine months of discipline,
then three of warm bliss.

Later comes a job and
time becomes an enemy.
Too slow,
too fast,
not enough,
no longer yours to enjoy.

At retirement,
time slows,
but somehow goes by faster.
Days become years,
until it’s just a blink between birthdays.

At the end,
time completely disappears.
Slowly evaporates,
as you await
the hope of eternal joy.
