What is time?
Calm, composed, gentle?
Is it cruel?
Time is fleeting-
seen then gone.
Time is sly-
steling precious moments
from you and those you love.
Time is prideful-
flaunting its power
over feeble minds.
Cunning, powerful, cruel-
that is time.

The author's comments:
Before composing this poem I was thining about how fast time flies and whether or not it was a good thing. This poem is my take on what time truly is.
