Battling Time

the sentiment today

is that time will run away

with the clicking of the clock

our lives must stay on track


there’s no time to contemplate

the beauty in our way

we must be a step ahead

to beat the timing of the day


feeling like we have chance

to defeat the invisible contender

we focus on the fight

and disregard the sacrifice


thus, in a bind we seem to be

thinking we can win

rushing to beat time

without a possibility


because one second we’re alive

and the next we’ll be gone

so, who wins this battle after all

the hopeless or the clock?


Thanks for reading,

Gabby Salazar
