I woke up this morning with a lot of time in my hands
I promised to read the scrolls, talk to my maker and feed my soul
But for a second I switched on the T.V
In the evening I was left wondering…
Where has my time gone?
On Monday I planned to read my books,
Till I’m confident about the test coming close
But for a minute I checked the internet
And for another I replied a chat.
With my books still staring at me,
I asked myself at night… Where did my time go?
I will do all in my power to find my time again
The minute lost to slumber,
The day lost to pleasure,
The week lost to the internet,
Five years gone with only beards to show…
I will pay with all of my savings,
I will travel ten kilometers to find,
I will stay up late to call for it…
But my time seems to have gone too far.
Far away from where eyes can reach
The sea told me it’s in its care
Till I checked and realized it has no end
I swam from the Pacific to the Atlantic
The sky said it has it
I flew from Africa to India
and I found out it’s lost within the air
But the land told me the bitter truth
Time lost today is forever lost…no amount can buy.
I went back home angry, crying, sobbing, wailing, complaining and shouting…
WHERE HAS MY TIME GONE?
