    The nightmare returns…your sleeps been troubled for the past month with visions of the Grimm Reaper coming to claim you. But this time, a new twist. An old man with wisdom in his eyes stands between you and death. As death swings his scythe for you the man turns to you and whispers “I can help you.” You wake up in a cold sweat. Trying to get your mind off the dream you walk over to the gas station near your house. So intent on deciphering the meaning of your dream you trip over a man hunched in the shadows. You back away quickly and apologize. He looks at you. It’s the man from your dream…


    ****

    ...I felt my face and body teem - when he looked up - cuz I recognized that gleam...
    ...What a surprising Hand, it seems ~ I've been dealt that Ace within my dreams...
    ...I beamed ~ There was no room for doubt...
    ...That steely stare - and snow white hair - all strewn about...
    ...Or maybe I - was just shrooming out - I couldn't help myself - from leaping back...
    ...Like Cameras Zooming Out ~ I'm terrified of ghosts, but wait...
    ...Ain't this guy Human now? ~ At the same time I'm wondering how...
    ...Did an Image from my Dreams - get Flesh Endowed...
    ...But my Thoughts Scream Loud - cuz all-uva-sudden...
    ...I hear the man-muttering, * You wanna know how? *
    ...And now - he's watches me bowed - while I'm having a cow...
    ...Never knew noislessness could be - this awful loud...
    ...I summon my Voice, to Silence the Crowd...
    "How did you do that? ~ Did you just read my mind?"
    * I'll answer your questions, but come now, one at a Time. *
    ...So I stop and rewind ~ "Who are you?" and wait ~ for him to finish the line...
    * I just told you...my name, my name well...you call me Time. *
    * I'm something, some what Divine ~ The Mobius Strip serves as my Spine. *
    * I'm an Ancient Incarnation, with a mortal combined. *
    ...Uhh...with that, I began to feel skeptical - this guy must be crazy...
    ...One of them types - who'd been dropped on their heads - as a baby...
    ...See as of lately - I been feeling the pressure from school and work...
    ...My dreams were just dreams - this guy a coincidence ~ I smirked...
    "Sure whatever, that's cool...I think I better get going..."
    * Go ahead, but first...ask yourself what's the price of not knowing? *
    ...Alarm steady growing - but with just a hint of doubt showing...
    "Pardon me for being aloof, I believe you bear the burden of proof..."
    "If you want me to stay...you had better start showing."
    But he's not mad in the least ~ in fact he starts "ho ho hoing."
    * You're amusing, lets see...I'll start with the environment you were grown in. *
    With a wave of his hourglass - I reel - then do the opposite of growing.
    I'm thrown in the past - a Ronin - a free Warrior whose having a blast - roaming...
    Going - Even further back ~ I watch my mind state collapse into a more primal class...
    Engaged in tribal war - Homo Magnus - clubbing some ass - letting blood to water the grass...
    Then I blink and I gasp - I'm an ape, looking for a tree limb to grasp...
    * Now, let's run it back fast ~ I'll send you deep in the future *
    * It's actually quite easy, how I rip holes in the fabric, then suture. *
    I feel like Goober - trapped in a Shell - all the while I'm being propelled...
    What!? The U.S. fell - I heard it ring - the Apocalypse Bell...
    Oceans swell, now recede - the surface of Earth resembles Hell...
    The Sun Expands, then dies - Venus and Mercury swallowed...
    The Earth now the first - magmafied - Mars and Jupiter soon follow...
    "All right, I believe you!" ~ "It seems you control place in space."
    "But what of my Dream? I see Death, then suddenly your face?"
    * Death gives chase, but I can end that race. Make it so he can't touch you. *
    * The price...your soul, me and you replaced, it's really not much trouble. *
    ...I was amazed, dazed...me, to control the grains of eternity - but for what a fee...
    ...Realization came suddenly - when I thought about the Blasphemy I'd seen.
    ...For all my life I'd been a peaceful being - yet he showed my past was bloody...
    ...And where was God in our Creation? - Did we really come from monkeys...
    ...I saw him then, for what he was - live forever...everything that's born must die...
    ...It wasn't Wisdom in his eyes I'd seen, but lies ~ the Devil wears clever Disguise...

    What's funny is I forgot I even wrote this.

    It was inspired by this book titled 'The Peaceful Warrior.'

    Lol.. I enjoy this passage
