Drowning in time

Time, the boundless string that binds all
The endless stream that flows in awe
Amazing how the stream flows swiftly from seconds to minutes
With its shores seeming unreachable

Like turbulence at seashore never moves the sea
Man's haste never unsettles time
Yes, they say time waits for no man
I'm wondering, should man rather wait for time

Just yesterday, some said they were in control of the flow
How come all wee see today is their drowning bodies?
They flew on the wings of time in peace
But fell to its wind in pieces

We see footprints as we move
How did those manage to remain on the sands of this ever-flowing stream?
Mystery, like footprints on the rock
Misery, time is a blueprint not to mock
