time goes by

September 24, 2009
what makes time pass on so faithfully
what is his motivation
in death and life he walks so straightly
always in the same direction
and what is his mission to carry out
in that does he succeed
is there anyone time cares about
anyone he doesn't leave
and when time looks back at his trail
and everyone is gone
will time be happy with what he sees
or will time regret when he moved on
or the moments he moved to fast to see

This sonnet is good, but it doesn't use iambic pentameter (ten syllables, five stressed, five unstressed). also, there aren't fourteen lines, which are in a sonnet (abab cdcd efef gg)  But I love the poem!  Very well written.
