TIME

You can domesticate a horse by a harness,

you can domesticate a river by constructing dams,

but you can never domesticate time by any means.


Few days before one was born,

now one is full grown

and few days later one will become old.


Days pass, months pass, years pass,

decades, centuries and millenniums go into oblivion.


O, time!

You were not born, you won’t die,

you create, you destroy,

you stay, you never take rest.

You are the supreme power-

I do worship your eternity.
