Five Things to Note About Time

Five Things to Note About Time

It’s raining hours on my minutes
While I wish it would just shower seconds.

Seconds until night finally takes his rest
And dawn beckons the inauguration of a new day
Where time ceases to be my foe
And becomes my friend,
Abetting my restless spirit
To find solace in polite conversation,
Uninhibited wit and an affable face.

It’s raining hours on my minutes
While I wish it would just shower seconds.

Much unlike my biological clock (tick tock)
This time moves at its own leisurely pace
Keeping me from that face and that smile.
The one that makes me want to sit for a while
Or maybe get lost at sea
And ride bareback on a wave to safety
Soaked in hope and unrequited love.

It’s raining hours on my minutes
While I wish it would just shower seconds.

Seconds until, using words in place of feet
We haphazardly dance across the keyboard.
Fingers instead of hands guide our way
And make addictive music
Of the tapping, inconsistent kind.
The coveted yet unique kind.

Stop!

Can you hear it?

Time’s playing our song.

1. Your time is precious and can never be given back to you. Remember that when making decisions but do not be miserly with it, just know who is deserving and who is not.

2. Everyone’s experience of time is different but if you do not value your own time, how can you expect others to and vice versa; if you do not value the time of others, why should they value yours?

3. Someone else’s lack of forward planning should does not dictate an emergency in your life… unless you want it to.

4.We all have the same hours in the day as Beyoncé.” No one is super human. Some people are more relentless than others. Make your time count to achieve your goals (not Beyoncé or any other celebrity for that matter).

5. Time is going to pass whether you like it or not. Why not do what you’re afraid to do? Chances are you’ll still be thinking about it 2, 5 or even 15 years from now.
