I voice my disagreement at the start
while holding all of time between my hands
so I can finally become aware
that I'm always turning back.

What am I?

I voice my disagreement at the start

counter - to voice opposition

while holding all of time between my hands

clock - holds time, well all the 12 hours and then resets, within its hands

so I can finally become aware

wise - have become aware

that I'm always turning back.

counterclockwise - turning in a backwards direction of rotation, than usually considered forward

You could be an

hourglass

because

it starts full from one half from the start and the sands continues (to disagree) till the end only to turn back again. Time is accounted between its ends.

  • $\begingroup$ How does this explain the first line about 'voicing disagreement at the start'? $\endgroup$ – Stiv Mar 9 at 16:03
  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv I was thinking along the lines of the sands moving along a direction to be an “argument” against the other end. $\endgroup$ – Ébe Isaac Mar 9 at 16:48
