Haven’t heard from you for a long time.
How are you spending your time,
Without me coming along for a run of time?
I miss your light, bright laugh as you fly by
Your transience makes you all the more precious.
Don’t abandon my side and leave me lonely.
Alone to face your swiftly moving wondrous
Glory that eases with your…read more
I love how you spoke of time as if you had a relationship with it. I believe we all had a relationship with time because time is basically recorded as every second, minute, hour, day, and weeks. You have shown true meaning to what time is all about. It’s the relationship we have with it time can bring up sadness, and happiness but without time how…read more
You never feel like enough.
Sorry. Rough opener.
But you don’t. You feel like you’re standstill when I kiss my lover or when I hear devastating news. You can feel like a bullet train when I’m inspired or distracted. I can feel your seconds stretch and lengthen when I am forced to wait.
I’ve always been an impatient person. (I am self-…read more
Time is very time-consuming itself and not many others can be patient with a timer that times itself. I used to be very impatient when it came to things and I used to move faster than time and always wanted to be ahead of it. Just like you, I went through ups and downs when it came to being impatient I learned how to wait because even time waits…read more
My dear old adversary, forgive me if I speak candidly about our relationship. If I don’t tell you these things now I may fail to do so in my future. I do not want to hold a grudge forever.
Where do I begin? Do I begin with your betrayal? Do I show my collection of hash marks? One for every time you let me down. Do I shout at you with r…read more
I agree with you Jordan time can sometimes make anyone feel angry because sometimes it moves too slow for us and sometimes it moves very fast and always a time when we don’t want it. Like for example time would move extremely slow if I was at a job I didn’t like. Then when I’m having fun with my family it moves very fast. Time gives off to many…read more
yep, time has a mind of its own. I found instead of being angry or upset about it, just give thanks you have any of it all. Even a few seconds to take in something that may change your life may be enough. of course there is that quote, “It’s never to late to be who we might have been.” and time sometimes allows us to to just that. thank you for…read more
You’re Alive, But Are You Living?
I work at a “little old lady” hair salon. My clients, who I lovingly call my “gals,” arrive week after week, hobbling with walkers and canes, for their appointments of washing, blow drying, or setting their hair in rollers. The more I listen to my gals, their stories, their troubles, their favorite memories, I realized one detail: They were no…read more
With time it’s hard to tell what our purpose on the earth is and sometimes if you are too focused on the reason of why we were put on the earth time can pass you in a blink of an eye. What we need to really focus on as you said is living our life to the fullest and fulfilling our dreams.
The Personification of Time
Dear The Personified Version of Time,
When I think about you a few things come to mind. Beginning with who created you this concept of “time”? This algorithm of man made numbers that bind us to an endless cycle beginning and ending when the sky changes hues, in which a vast number of people devote their lives to. You are vain and are unaware of…read more
Now the sentence that got me hooked was was time created to give us fear or a sense of belonging. I believe that time gives us both. We tend to fear over our time or last days on this earth and also whether or not we are late for certain occasions. Also having a sense of belonging could also play in time as well because we tend to use our time to…read more
Imagine this; you are driving your car; I seem to do that a lot lately, going back and forth between college and home. Except for this time, you are not alone. Your sister is with you, your dad, maybe a boyfriend or a best friend; whoever makes you happy. It is not the endless pain of driving away by yourself. Hours are longer.…read more
A conversation with time
And it is in the small facets of life
That I know myself–it is in these small facets
That I recognize the difference.
That I am not the same–
Am I a whisper of ghosts past, am I a shadow
Beneath the soiled realms, and I ask you,
what am I?
It is in the races I have with Time, that I find that–I am different.
You see, me an…read more
It’s crazy how time can be this thing where we love me at times and other times we dislike it. Time can be used effectively when we continue to track ourselves and set marks for ourselves. But other times time itself disposes us and takes heed of us when we are in a conflict or feeling rushed to do certain things in our lives.
Time too short
As I anxiously scrambled into the studio, I hurried to the back. I dropped my belongings in the corner gracefully as I greeted the folks I knew in the room. I signed the little attendance sheet and began to survey the room. Of course my eyes landed on you, such a beautiful being.
For that moment, I was fully captivated by your essence. But…read more
Time is very short but also long depending on the situation you are in. Many people would say that time is short when you are in a situation in a hurry to go somewhere or by the bedside of a loved one that is about to pass. We may think that we have all the time in the world to do something but you never know when the time comes on the short end…read more
A letter to time
Individuals around me talk such a great amount about you, all the time they discuss time. They say, “Get it done, before you use up all available time”, “Get hitched, this present time this is the ideal open door”, and “Bring in cash, don’t throw away your energy on folks.” Sometimes I believe you’re getting more well-known as time elapses by.…read more
I agree with you many people often say not to waste time on the things that don’t get you anywhere in life because even when it comes to school or college you are used up. all your time to study something that may not be your true calling and realized you spent all those years for nothing. They often say not to live your life in regret and find…read more
I agree @kayjahlorde
TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE. It’s crucial to use time effectively so that you don’t look back on your life with regret. Many times, people spend their present time by worrying about the future. Living a happy life is crucial. Make sensible choices. I would advise everyone to get ready for the future but to avoid wasting time…read more
Love isn’t Time-less
Dear Father Time,
Can I call you that? I know it’s an image of yourself that you’re familiar with but it feels weird for me to use. I haven’t heard anyone refer to you in that way since Charlotte the spider sang to Wilbur in the movie Charlotte’s Web. On VHS, might I add, so you get a better idea of my age.
This letter is like my version of the…read more
I agree that love isn’t timeless because even if your love ends in a heartbeat and in heartache your time still wasn’t wasted. because in that situation you’ve learned and grown from it. It may have hurt at the time but it was just a starting point for you to reach the finish line. Love also comes in different forms but it’s always mostly who you…read more
I appreciate your taking the time to read my letter and to comment. If you’ve had an experience like the one you mentioned (i.e. losing a loved one to a car accident), my heart goes out to you.
I liked your point that time was wasted by loving someone even if you didn’t have as much time with them as you had hoped.
Cosmic time has no clock but only transmutation of negative experiences and energy. Something you can never get back, is time. A person that spends their whole life in a mental prison, loses the reality of time. You will not actually escape that prison, until you dig deep and figure out why it is happening. Trauma at a young age can cause mental…read more
Wow, I love your take on time and how sometimes we are held in a mental prison. People always talk about how we should always think outside of the box and try to look for things that we help us thrive to have a stronger mindset. I believe that we can all break out of that mental prison and open up our eyes to the way cosmic time, truly moves.
@Kayjah Lorde, thank you for your sweet words. I am 30 years old at this time and spent many years in my own mental prison. It really can change a person’s reality. I am so thankful and blessed to have found my own cosmic time. It changed everything for me. I have been able to go from survival mode to thriving. I also have always cared so deeply…read more
