43 Minutes poem about time
Start writing a post

43 minutes

And submission must take place.

42 minutes


Now 40

Counting down until midnight

Until the next day

Next week

Next month

Next year

What are you counting for

For a due date

A better tomorrow?

A time of less stress

Or freedom


Count more quickly

And time will tick more slowly.

Wish for more time

And time will tick more quickly.

39 minutes.

There was once a time

Where boredom was felt

Dullness, monotony

What would I give

To feel it again.

What would I give

To relive time

A time where we were free

A time where we could do anything

Yet chose to do nothing

Yet lounged and lazed.

37 minutes.

In childhood we had forever.

33 minutes.

Could I have done more

Would I have done more

Had I known.

26 minutes.

So much to do

So little time

I want to go back

To a littler time.

17 minutes.

With less that needed to be done

No responsibility

No expectations.

11 minutes.

Will tomorrow

Be any better

Or the week after

Or the month

The year?

4 minutes.

Push past

1 more.

3 minutes.

But past this hill

Is another.

A cycle.

2 minutes.

I'm caught.

I need help

We're all caught.

1 minute.

The end



Where is it?


Can't I find it?

30 seconds.

Is it

Even out there?

20 seconds.


And now I must submit

Must turn in

9 seconds.

The worst poem

8 seconds.

That I have probably written in my entire life.

7 seconds.

And I've written some pretty sh*t poems.

6 seconds.

Honestly, though.

5 seconds.

I need to learn

4 seconds.

How to better manage

3 seconds.

My Odyssey

2 seconds.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
