Time

Those who spend their days

Studying the hourglass;

Are stuck in an emotional haze,

Watching their very lives pass!

 

I will not waste my time,

In a relationship that is at the brink of destruction.

Everyone knows that I didn’t commit the crime,

And my head needed reconstruction!

 

“Time” took me away from my daughters,

And that was what nearly destroyed me.

Mentally, I was left for the slaughter,

But I hold on for the sake of my family!

 

I used time to my advantage,

I started utilizing the time I had.

My wounded heart wears a bandage,

And over time sought refuge in a pen and a pad!
