To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.

A thing so
strange and
nobody knows
how it works
really means and
no one here on earth
can control it
at all.
Time is
slowly dripping
from a
leaking faucet
Time is
sweeping everything
in its path
rushing down
the side of a
Time is
in my hands
no matter
how hard I try
to keep it in
it's still
out the cracks
that are invisible
to me.

I can't remember it clearly, but it went something like this:

"The past is the past, the future is the furture. But now, now is like a gift, which is why it is called present."

Thank you for your comment! I like this poem.... Great job! I'm going to read the rest of yours when I'm less bussy :)
