APED – Prompt 50: We Run Out Of Time

This poem was written for A Prompt Each Day, a daily dose of inspiration.  For today’s prompt – we were a word to inspire our writing (time).  It took me a while to come up with an idea – I kept hearing in my head “Like sands through the hour glass – so are the Days of Our Lives” from the days when my Mom watched soap operas.  It was not my favorite thing – instead, I curled up with a book.

 

Time keeps passing

passing by

and we keep racing

against time

and we keep reaching

but just get by

’cause we run out of time.

 

Moments lost

now gone to waste

fruits of our labor

we rarely taste

for love of dreams

we never chased

’cause we run out of time.

 

And friends we’ve made

forget our name

but death will take us

all the same

and we refuse

to take the blame

’cause we run out of time.
