Nothingness

Today

I lost another piece of my flesh

Strangely

I feel no different than I had been

Yesterday

It was only a little portion of it

Tomorrow?

Who knows? It just might be everything

Still

I marvel at the rise and fall of day

Wishing

Time would make up its mind

Hoping

For once, humanity becomes vanity

Happy

To see it end one day

Unfortunately

Time zones make Time a dummy

Undecided

It watches hopelessly and helplessly

Weakened

By carefully-calibrated divides

Mankind

Craftily created to cheat its own demise

Defeated

Time seeks help from the Leveller

Death

The only being unrestricted by zones

Slowly

With his souls-snatching scythe in hand

Surely

Time, in the end, becomes the victor
