  • “Time present and time past, are both perhaps present in time future,
    And time future contained in time past. If all time is eternally present
    All time is unredeemable.” T.S. Eliot

    It’s time now to step out of Time.
    I am exhausted with their clocks,
    those cruel masters of our lives.
    I never ever was on time,
    never on time, never on time,
    hurry up please, hurry up, oh,

    hurry up! You are late again!
    Late! Late again! Always the guilt,
    the deep down dread of being late,
    the punishments for being late,
    the stinging pain, the flowing tears.
    I am exhausted with their clocks,

    the digital and analog,
    I will no longer jump through hoops,
    a circus seal trying to please.
    I am exhausted with their clocks!
    No more of this, no more, no more!
    Freedom is calling me by name:

    I am exhausted with their clocks.
    Time to escape time, it is time,
    to study Taoist texts, to live
    as Wayfinders, and navigate
    by sun and wind and ocean waves.
    Think of the freedom of the Saint,

    the timeless flow of Art, the Love
    transcending this mortality!
    Think of the Mystic’s timeless sight.
    Find heaven in a grain of sand.
    I am exhausted with their clocks.
    Freedom is calling, calling, hear?

    Time to claim our amazing lives,
    Time to embrace the Infinite,
    Live beyond time in timeless joy.
    Here, in this timeless moment, now,
    just close your eyes and feel the peace
    of letting go, of being free.

    Here in this stillness, breathe, just breathe,
    and step into Eternity.
