Time is as Fluid as Running Water

Matt Connors

Time is as fluid as running water

The current swiftly pulling you along

Our movement through time is like an otter

Though ours is always an entire life long

Time shapes itself based on situation

Slowly through school, speeding fast through a game

Does water as well, adapt to occasion

Changing its shape and its texture the same

However, they don’t always seem to compare

One is tangible, the other is not,

They may seem the same, but the same they’ll be ne’er

Call them identical, you just cannot

Water and time are alike to each other,

But not enough to be called brothers
