distracted by gleaming greens emerging into the deep sea the pitch black, ditch facts invested in the diversity shrugging off adversity distracted by gleaming greens birth in sea like Aphrodite my descent is perfect timing
Time is a prison That I cannot escape It drags me back and forth Lashed against square walls There is no break In its relentless order It’s like a tyrant Commanding my existence Everyone else is trapped In their own ticking prison But they stopped fighting Gave into the stupor Rats on a wheel is much less painful Than running up against Time’s unforgiving confines Why are we all roped in? Is there no way out? Of this looming pendulum Pounding in my ears Laughing at hope A sarcastic witch Where is God? He doesn’t put himself in a box His days are unnumbered This is a joke or a game I don’t want to play I just want to be free This monotonous pulse Every second dictated Drives me into madness But I’m the only sane one who still acknowledges captivity I will conquer this regime Even if God is the dictator Because there is only void Between the beats Blackness, stillness That’s where God hides Beyond time, beyond life I will break the code I will find Him If He’s not there At least, I will be free In the peace and quiet
