Lost In Time

By satellite23, Cincinnati, OH

Wasted space filled by wasting time.
Minutes pass while the clock unwinds.
Another hour gone, nothing complete.
How many fight can be lost
before admitting defeat?
Like a pendulum, I swing back and forth
between laziness and boredom, the
double-edged sword.
Attack the clock with ignorance and pride;
into the endless continuum I blindly ride.

Lost in time.
What time is it?
Chipping away life
bit by bit.
Never slows down,
moments pass by.
Isn't it funny
how fast time flies?

How much time is a life truly worth if it's
gone in a second,

thanks, applesaucehater! I've actually written a better song, also, but TeenInk denied it for it's content. Seriously, this song had more graphic content in it!
