Frozen In Time

Written by Tan Nguyen

Unable to move forward,
Unable to move backward,
Time constantly flowing onward,
Leaving me frozen in time,
Watching as the world around me,
As the magic of time,
Changes everything I’ve ever known.

I remembered a point in time,
When my youngest sister,
Was so small, still a little baby,
Now she’s grown, taller than me,
Time left me behind,
Affecting everyone else in my life,
While forgetting I was still alive.

I remembered when my parents,
Were young and youthful looking,
Years has passed by,
Age can be seen clearly,
Upon their faces and eyes,
Shocked me by the changes,
Made as the time passed by,
I desperately want to be a part,
Of the world I once knew and loved.

Frozen in time, frozen in place,
Breaking the crystal which holds me,
Disallowing my movements forward,
Blocking my movements backward,
No matter how hard I tried,
No matter what I do,
I can’t break free, I can’t rejoin,
Watching uselessly as time passes by,
Ignoring my pleas, ignoring my screams,
I don’t know what else to do,
Only waiting till that time comes,
Waiting patiently all this time,
Yet, I am dying each passing moment.
