With the burden of a million curses,
she scuffs in an unflagging way,
fondling zillions as it passes,
the aroma of hope it does spray.
What if time complies with us?
What if she ceases to budge ?
What if she gives in to our pleadings?
What if she doesn’t move even if we nudge?
With time sufferings would linger,
tears ceaselessly would wet your face,
that ” time almost heals everything”
would not descend to embrace.
Your wounds wouldn’t metamorphose to scars,
contusions would continue to reek,
pain would mangle you in its grip,
recovery, from none you can seek.
Despair would clad you eternally,
you will find no light at the tunnel’s end,
darkness would compel you to succumb,
no ray of hope would glisten to amend.
The woes of ailing men wouldn’t stop,
they would dangle on their death beds,
time wouldn’t pass rewarding salvation,
making you realise how tarrying time dreads.
Sorrow would prevail for good,
worries would always conjure up,
a wait would end no more,
an ocean would never come of a drop.
Joy wouldn’t replace despondency,
neither well being, malaise,
spring wouldn’t follow winter,
neither clarity , haze.
The crux of life is transience,
perpetuity we can’t endure,
let time slither as she does,
for each agony she’ll leave a cure.
We call time selfish, sadist, slit and what not. Amidst all these curses it continues to move , unaffected by any of our words . But if one day time stops, then will the consequences be favourable ?
