No Time - A Poem About the Strains of Modern Life
'No Time' is a poem about the modern era; about how our lives and daily demands leave many of us with little time to truly enjoy life; to sit back and appreciate the the things we really love.
I push through the chaos,
My mind tangles up,
My senses are battered,
My thoughts remain shut,
The purr of the traffic
Sends birds to the sky,
Abused by construction,
I wish I could fly,
As I glance at my watch
I know I must run,
I've no time for a life,
No time to have fun,
I've no time to observe,
My eyes cannot see,
There's no time to listen,
No time to be me.
