will you stop bugging them,
asking ones to always look back?
Your time has zipped, leapt, fled.
will you start joining them?
They’re asking for twenty-four hours
for there’s much to know, do, and see.
will you quit irritating them,
pulling them toward your desires constantly?
You’re not assured, promised, nor guaranteed.
You, Elements of Time,
need to practice patience
with harried human beings,
as the poor ol’ souls seek to
balance tensed-time requests
for health, hope, and happiness.
