The days are too short

The minutes too few

I wasted so many already

On hurt feelings

On tears of surrender

On disliking myself

On anger and frustration

On wishes and hopes

On sleep… on avoidance

On escapism and heartache

Precious golden seconds

Carelessly spent

On too many of the wrong

Small things

And not enough seconds

Focusing on the little things

With love

  1. The choice is ours
    will we sit in regret
    counting wasted moments
    adding up lost years
    spent on things
    that did not serve
    or give real joy
    that chest of false jewels
    an illusion of treasure
    or stop and lift
    eyes to notice
    real gifts like
    fleeting spark
    of sun
    in a dew drop
