I Am Father Time

I've been stalking you your whole life
Hiding in the shadows
Creeping, lurking
With scythe in hand
Waiting for the right time
To take what's mine
My whsipers tease your death
And their echoes raise the hair on your neck
My hourglass is a reminder
The sands of time are running out
I break down your body throughout your life
As a warning
A reminder
Did you find redemption
I don't care
Judgement is not for me to decide
I am father time
I always capture my prey
I am the ultimate predator
So settle your truth
Before you find my wrath
Or your afterlife will be haunted
For eternity
As I am undefeated
I am father time
