Time Follows You (a piece of my writing)

Time is like a shadow, always following you. Although it is intangible, it is always there, swirling around you, the past, the present, the future. All around the world, clocks are ticking, seconds are passing, Time is moving on. There is never a tomorrow, as by the Time it comes, it is already today. The past is gone, and Time is in the present, never to return until, in the future, minds drift to memories which were thought lost. The past, revisited, brings laughter, anger, fear, tears. Time appears transparent, but as you flick through the chapters of the storybook that is your life, it becomes solid, taking the shape of something that is hazy, veiled, shrouded in mist. What is Time? A nightmare, a friend? A hero, a villain? A spy, following, examining your life, scrutinizing your every move? The mystery of Time is buried deep under a mountain of secrets. Will it ever be unearthed?

Hope you like it! We did this in Year 5 with a stimulus of “Time”. I’ve edited it slightly. 😀



Hi! I'm Matilda. I have a blog about books and words and writing, and I love all three. My main goal in life is to end world poverty and afterwards eat lots of chocolate. 2018 will be my first year of high school. I have a love/hate (but mostly hate) relationship with homework. Three things you should know about me: 1. I am at that stage in blogging where I've stopped posting because I can't be bothered but then feel guilty and write up a schedule so I do, 2. I HATE guns: don't take one near me, 3. Reading takes up at least 50% of my waking hours.
