The Poetry Snapshot: Time Running

Everyone around us has 24 hours.
Yet sometimes, I feel like I’m the only one climbing towers,
to make the most of my time,
and squeeze in work to make a dime.

Everyone around us has 24 hours.
So why do I feel the need to be empowered?
To use my time and make a change.
If everyone around me has 24 hours,
the girl who cured cancer and the boy who runs track,
they must have superpowers.
But at the end of the day,
that’s not the case.

Everyone around us has 24 hours.
Finding a way to make yours count,
that’s what matters.

This poem was inspired by the rush I’ve been in, which didn’t allow me to take new photographs, and the panic to make the most of my time. Ironic, yet fitting.
