Poetry: Temporary

Out of the Sandbox

By Cypress

This place is so temporary, and time moves so fast
it’s scary
It ticks with such fury but why is that second hand
in such a hurry
One day when I look back and I ask, “Where did
the time go?”
I hope I’m not also asking, “Where did my
mind go?”
Foot on the gas, no time to coast; vision to win
heart full of hope
I want to inspire young minds, challenge the design,
create the sublime
Find the strength HE put inside before I reach the end
of my time
So while some days may seem never ending, the truth is so
glaring, this place is so temporary
