Human Construct of Time

Janet Kuypers
(10/21/11 #1)

is this the best of times
is this the worst of times
or is this just
          one of those times

only humans understand time
where did all the time go,
we ask
time slips away
as we search for ways
to avoid looking old
to avoid death

if i ever saw god
i’d have to ask,
how old are you?
how much longer
do you just sit there

but time is a human construct
i have to remind myself
as i sit and think
at times like these
