The ducks fly backwards over our house,
From my sleep I try to rouse,
Time ticking in reverse, slowly descending,
The dreams, the thoughts, the life pretending.
The wrapping is shiny, the inside is bad,
Who puts their trust in those who know.
To help them flourish, learn and grow.
The ducks fly forward to the truth,
The clock moves on, losing youth,
No time for dwelling on the past,
Your time is now, live it, make it last.
