my world

Summary: This is very short and sweet, perhaps too poetic, or cliched but I do quite like it. Written in 10 minutes because I am so busy this week and I'll probably get lynched if I don't go and help down stairs. Hope no one minds that I changed the rlg slightly. Cathy

Now can I shine for all the world to see?

My world is minute
a single shimmer
a minute in an ending hour
a grain of sand falling through glass
my now has gone before I comprehend

My world is my component parts
the madness gone
the madness thatís to come?
My world is me
Not terrified that Iíll turn into she.

Another vivid little piece.
It set me thinking [don't know why] that while we collectively realise there are people out of step with reality,or out of step with society, there might also be those who find themselves out of step with time itself. Always too early or too late; just miss the bus; leave 5 minutes before something important occured, etc..
Liked the use of minute [small] and minute [time], and the ambiguity of the final line leaves the reader mulling.
