Nature of time

Tick Tock.

Time’s moving

You can’t change the past.


Tick Tock.

Time’s flowing

Just do what you must.


Tick Tock.

Move on!

You’ll just get more scars!


Tock Tick.

Reverse it?

Consequences there are,


Tock Tick.

Messed with time,

You forgot who you are-


doesn't matter.

Time moves on!

Your soul forlorn.

All trapped up.

In the past.

Tick Tock.

Welcome to the fragments of my mind. Thoughts. Ideas. All once a chaotic yet artistic mess, before I expanded them into entire, complete poems.

    I love the "tock tick" before "don't mess with time" - really clever way to make us feel that jarring sensation and ram the message home 😁

  • Tick, tock, don't mess with time. Father time doesn't like it anymore than Mother nature. (Chiffon margarine commercial)

  • Love this . 💜

    Love the repetition here -really creates a sense of urgency and the reversal works so well 🤍
