a Poem by Raquel Swann


one second has passed you by,

It’s only a second,

in which you didn’t try.


A minute, you stayed in bed,

Was there something else,

you could have done instead?


an hour, went out the door.

Push your goals aside,

For one hour more.


A day just wasted away.

I’ll get it to it tomorrow,

is what you’ll say.


One year passes you by,

You make a resolution,

But it was a lie.


a decade, you’ve progressed no where.

All of the sudden you’re complaining,

That life isn’t fair!
