Time Has Told Me

Life is messy.
Life is difficult.
Life is chaos.
Life is beautiful.

The more we try to understand, analyze and control life, the more we realize this is futile. We have Darwinism, Freudianism, Marxism, Existentialism, and if you were to look critically at any of these you find yourself into yet another ‘ism’, if it only be that of criticism.

Control, tame, limit, contain, dominate, master...these are all terms that allude us when we think of life and growth.

Life forges on, around, and through. It appears as chaos. That is beautiful.

Time Has Told Me - Nick Drake

Time has told me
You're a rare rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind.

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
Someday our ocean
Will find its shore.

So I`ll leave the ways that are making me be
What I really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don't want to love.



  1. "Time has told me
    You're a rare rare find
    A troubled cure
    For a troubled mind."

  5. Nice site in every way Janet, and thanks for dropping in at fmpoetry. The Surface poem trilogy should be of interest to you over the next few days. I'm agnostic (pantheist) like you seem to be. Have a nice Wednesday, Marc.

  6. Janet, there's a blog award for you in Diários de Filosofia, I know you don't use them but your blog brings me to my senses.

    Much love!

  7. Time has told me that "everything comes to him who hustles while he waits." Time is the one thing we all have in common. The thing that sets us apart is how we make use of it.
