TIME IS FLEETING

  Time is fleeting. See it slipping through hands eager to clasp all that cannot be caught. Time is fleeting but this is not always tragic for we are traffic motoring along the carriage way in search of contentment in accompanying cars, meandering towards the midway and making out with the magic that caresses the […]

I am angry, Tired, sleepless, restless, Bitter, torn And twisted. I am tearful, Frightened, silenced, muted, Mixed up, maddened And pestered. I am bloody Boiling, brooding, blushing, Bending over Backwards. But I’m alive Surviving, breathing, breaking, Living, learning, Evolving.
