time passes

Time passes, no matter what I do

whether I fill it with work or adventure
whether I spend it on daydreams or meditation
I can build up my body or let it go
I can travel far afield or stay in one place

my life may be as predictable as clockwork
or as random as a ball in a game of chance
I may love and hunger and have every emotion
I may be at peace like a lake in the sunrise

time passes, no matter what I do
the world will change, whether I help it or not
