My Opponent

My Opponent

Time is my opponent
always starting the continuous race
with emergency situations.
The only thing is,
I always lose.

Time rules over me,
looming over me,
bragging in its endless victories
over me. I won't give up,
But the only thing is,
Time's impossible to beat.

Time decides my fate,
It has the power to destroy my life,
It will eventually wear me down.
I will live. The only thing is,
Time controls me.

I will fight until I die,
Fight for my freedom,
Fight for my hope.
Blood, sweat and tears I'll shed,
A race between nature and industry,
one man against society.
The only thing is,
Time is a machine: it has no soul.
