CLOCK ON THE WALL

                                           CLOCK ON THE WALL



THE CLOCK ON THE WALL READS HALF PAST THE HOUR
EVERY TIC OF THE LITTLE SECOND HAND SEEM TO GET LOUDER
WITH NUMEROUS INMATES SCREAMING OUT AT BEHIND THESE SOLID WALLS, COLD BARS, WHICH HOLDS THE CLOCK THAT ANSWERS MOST OF THEIR CALLS.
EVERYTHING RAN ON TIMELY SCHEDULE ALL EYES ON THE CLOCK WAITING FOR THE NEXT DIRECTION TO GO. WITH ONLY MY WIT, FAITH AND STRENGTH GIVEN TO ME BY GOD IT’S ALL I HAVE TO GET ME SAFELY HOME.
IT IS CLEAR EVERY MOMENT IN TIME HAS VALUE WHETHER YOU CHOOSE TO SEE IT, OR NOT IT’S A GIFT OF NO OTHER.  I HOPE FOR YOU TO TRULY UNDERSTAND IT BEFORE YOU ARE THE NUMBER STARING AT IT.
THIS CLOCK SITS AT A PLACE NOT ALL CAN HANDLE EVERYTHING IS CONTROLLED BY NUMBERS. NO MATTER HOW YOU PICK IT UP OR PUT IN DOWN. THIS IS A PLACE WHERE EVERYTHING STANDS STILL AND THINGS RARELY FOUND. A PLACE OF NO TIME FOR YOU TO GET BUT ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD FOR YOU TO HAVE.
JUST LIKE THE CLOCK ON THE WALL WHO HANGS AROUND TO REMIND YOU OF THAT FACT. BUT AS THE DAY NEARS TO ITS END. COUNT TIME BECOMES YOUR CLOSET FRIEND. IT’S TIME TO COME IN FROM THE YARD; I CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER AND THINK TO MYSELF WHO’S REALLY DOING THE TIME


                                            THE CLOCK ON THE WALL, 
                                            THE INMATES OR 
                                            THE GUARDS.

To both sides who can relate.
                                                                              BY PAUL  J WILLIAMS SR
