Time is Limited – a poem

Time is Limited

They say time is infinite
But it isn’t.
It starts one day,
Forgotten,
But not long ago –
Out of timelessness
Into life,
With no distinct moment
To mark its birth.
It proceeds
Relentlessly,
Metronomically,
Without end –
Until it stops.

Time ends.

It is the sound of one hand clapping. It seems to me that the infinite reaches of the universe and time only exist while there is a consciousness to acknowledge it.
I do not remember the moment of my origination. My consciousness came into being. There were no distinct boundaries, no moment when I came into being.
When I am gone the universe and time will cease to exist.
