Time
can't be held in a bottle
or forced to flow in the river's place
captured in a dewdrop
or thrown out the window

Time
moves at so many different paces
swirling around itself in endless patterns
where one thread falls,
another will take a slightly different place

Time
treats us all the same
we were born and told to live
so we live and time passes
we live and some days want to hold time back

But Time
can't be held in a bottle
or forced to flow in the river's place
captured in a dewdrop
or thrown out the window

Time
doesn't obey any human being
nor does it control life
it can only be and weave its patterns
for the life of the world
