Poetry 5.7

Time is slipping free of you,
List the things out in your head
There’s something missing
Absent from your priorities
But you carry on anyway
The day has ended it’s time to sleep
Oh no wait
You remember the one thing
That should have been the top
You.
You have two options
Stay up for you time
Or forget you and sleep
You’re so tired but there are things you really wanted to do
You should have been first
But you’re not even last.
