Stoned like Mount Everest

“Time is the thief you cannot banish." Phyllis McGinley, Writer, 1905 – 1978 I, wake up in the morning, hurry to get ready; run to the station to catch the first train; get out of the train, walk to the office; sit at the desk, sink face to the monitor; get up, run back to station; come home at dusk; grab something for dinner; sleep. Next day - Repeat. The day after- Repeat. Once in a while, I stand in front of the mirror; frown at the person inside; because, it questions me. How dare? “What are you doing? Where are your dreams? When is your dreamy vacation? Have you born only for this ?” On such days, through a thin cloud of tears, I see, time creeps like a thief, steals my dreams and runs away. I stay stoned, like Mount Everest. Contest - Writing Challenge- Quote inspired- Poetry Contest Date - 12 November 2020 Contest Sponsor- Constance La France 2nd place in the contest
