Time Cannot Stop

I was old ten years ago,

but I didn’t know it,

I thought I had the time

to do whatever I saw fit.

But as the years passed by,

I realised it was a lie,

time cannot stop and leave you

where you want,

you have to move closer

to the day you will die.

When it finally catches up

and calls out your name

you can’t hide behind

your anonymity or even your fame.

It doesn’t judge you on

the life you have lived

whether you had everything

or whether you were deprived.

Once time gets hold

you can kiss everyone goodbye

as you lie on your back facing the sky.
