Time Flows By

Day 3 - Progress
As I was writing, time flows by.
I was sitting quietly and life walks by.
I was looking for a better reality.
I was waiting for a better time.

Early or late, fast or slow:
Humanity will choose soon.
Yes or no, forward or back:
Why do we avoid life now?

The cores are hidden.
The skin is obvious
Although the husks vanish,
the essence persists.
