366 Poems: August 9th, 2016

Time of Your Life

And so life goes…

a tick,

a tock,

a trip,

a slip,

a make,

a break,

but no.

Do not let your life be boiled down

in one-syllable words.

And in one-syllable words

do not ever walk away.

The days are made

to be too short

and you yourself can fill them up

with the narration of a thousand years.

Do not go

until they ask for a standing ovation.

Do not go…

.

Not until the ticking stops.
