Our Relationship To Time (a work in progress)

Our relationship to time

Is an

emotional one

We long for the past

We fear the future

We are frustrated

with the present

Time moves around us at the frequency with which we emote to it

In our pain, it lingers

As if attempting to provide comfort.

In our glee, it flees as if it is a child accepting our challenge to outpace it.

In our impatience with it, it becomes


A petulant teenager, calling us out on our hypocrisy.

And we still cannot measure it


we rarely choose to recognize our emotions as

physical actors in our story lines.

We do not fully relate to ourselves.

And so

We cannot accurately measure the movement
