If you’re a regular reader, you know the drill. Friday is my day to take 5 minutes to do some free writing based on a prompt provided by the wonderful Kate Motaung and share it with the whole 5 minute Friday community. Today’s prompt is control.
the clock counts down
no matter how hard i try to hold the hands it trickles
of old into nothing and everything
all at once.
reminders of tick tocking, mark docking rulers of old life
and future strife
and i strive to not become one of those
