Dials and Bells

Dials and Bells

looking up skywards
   we can't fail to see

      dials and bells
      on a tower face

   marking time
sounding alarms

   as our lives tick by
chimes ringing out

      we can yell
   we can scream
whisper or shout

dials mark time
   in a visual way

      but now we find
   we may not know
   or even understand

      what time is
or how it flows

   what really matters 
with the time we have
      is how we grow
and what we grow into
