The stones that lay on the riverbed
Grow round gradually
Water flows over them perpetually
But it is time that erodes.

Mountains, proud and powerful
Slowly fade from prominence
Rain and wind assaulting them
But it is time which forces them to submit.

Life, brief and energetic
Exhausts itself in a blink
Bones slowly calcifying,
It is time that preserves them.

War, violent and horrid
Infects the world with hate
But the bullets stop being fired
And time brings peace.

Injustice, blatant and atrocious
Plagues all great civilizations
But all debts are paid in full
As time brings death to empires.

Heartbreak, vividly painful
Agonizes the souls of the lonely
But the heart's woes pass
And time heals all wounds.

Emotion, pervasive and immutable
Infinitely various and complex
Impossible to predict its fluctuation
But time brings balance.

The Immensity of Time;
Impossible to comprehend,
But plain in every moment.

I feel it flow through me
As it beckons me closer to the void
And I let it take me there.

Time Goes On.
I hardly have a choice in the matter.
Wrote the first stanza of this a while ago on the bus, the rest just now. I very much like this one.

Depressing yet cheerful in equal measure.

Balance, my friend. :) That was the whole idea of the poem. :)
