Hourglass

Time is a quizzical abstraction

It can take years to understand one second,

but a second to understand a lifetime of actions

The hourglass adds new twists with each turn

Obscuring thoughts and emotions,

teaching us lessons we hate to learn

We cannot control it, as time has no master

It’s best to go with the flow,

least you incur a wrathful disaster
