About the Poem

This poem "Time" is about growing up, life and choices you need to make as you grow.


There comes a moment when you must look Time in the eye,
You must break a joyful smile, instead of letting out a mournful sigh.
The past can be rocky and at times, very cruel in a way,
But be thankful you made it and live for only today
It's hard to grow up and live life in reality,
To take on challenges and strive for who you want to be.
Put Time on your side and let it help you grow,
For what is the future? Not even Time can know.
