Time The Tyrant
12/27/2019

Trapped, but not by walls,

Fences, cages, cement or signs.

Like yourselves I’m a victim.

Victimized by the tyranny of time.

Trapped, but not by walls.

Kidnapped with each passing second,

Held against my will,

Murdered, and time was the weapon.

Trapped, but not by walls.

Soon to be gone and forgotten.

Time erases all

The flesh will wither and rotten.

Trapped, but not by walls

Held bound in the grips of tyranny

Her grasp, I cannot break

Time. Her dominion is my misery.
