Nothing More Than Time

In this life when you’re living bold
Believing words your heart gets told
Grand dreams lay shattered, dead and cold
You realize they were bought and sold
For nothing more than time

When living solely in your head
No matter what the others said
Your heart remains the living dead
You’d better open up instead
For nothing more than time

We walk this earth with spirits bright
Yet darkness clouds them black as night
Because we know the abject fright
Of scars that seldom see the light
Like we own nothing more than time

Step up to the mantel mirror
Be cognoscente and a hearer
Draw death no closer nor nearer
Life’s balance could be no sheerer
Than owning nothing more than time
