Time is slipping away,
through the spaces between my fingers.
Tightening my fingers, I tried.. to grasp,
The world waits for no one, I know.
I just need a little time off,
I seek the permission please.
I realised, I can’t.
The responsibilities, the burdens and,
everything else.. crashing me like a boulder.
These invisible ones, staying on me for too long..
I wish I could let go, I can’t.
I can’t.. I can’t let go.
I’m afraid of losing control,
and letting others decide my destiny.
Can I ever let go? I can’t.
