The Shattered Timeline (Poetry)

stormy ocean with big wave

“The Shattered Timeline” is a narrative poem about the many twists and turns that come with developing a creative universe.

All across the shattered timeline

So many dead ends lie in view

Led along by twisted road signs

You must wonder which paths are true

O’erwhelmed by possibility

The plots keep winding and twisting

While there’s much flexibility

You find your trusty ship listing

Out of balance you lean forward

Looking over the edge you see

Cracks and fissures you’re coming towards

It’s a rough, stormy temporal sea

What came first could now come up last

The middle is murky and dark

Confusion is coming up fast

But here comes another random spark
