Undeveloped Time

Time races by
Going on and on
What went on and on…
Forever was yesterday
And yesterday is tomorrow
Joy secretly reflects sorrow
What the future holds
Time already knows
It has tomorrow by the throat
Where it wishes
Is where it goes
The future cries out
But today doesn’t hear
Deep in the night
The future shouts
Yet no one is here
Pictures of the past
Are all too well preserved
Pictures of the future
Are all too well reserved
Our pictures are undeveloped
Hiding in the back of our minds
And still, time goes by
And makes them even harder to find.
