Time

There are not enough hours in the day
Nor restfulness in sleep
To revive this metabolic heap
Or artistic misinterpretation
A manifestation
Of time and space and function
Of so much to do, so little
Time to rest and reflect
The effort to hold the head up
Is the weight upon your shoulders
The chip
That weakens the infrastructure of the soul
And shatters the mass of mis-spoken thought
Into a fragmentary cry
For freedom
