With Time, You Never Know


You think you have time

You think you have a chance
Another chance
You think there will be
Opportunities, in plenty
You think
You’ll keep some time in your hands
For books you want to read
For good coffee
For just standing still in the rain.
You think you
Will always have options
You are sure you’ll
Finish what you started
That list,
Those resolutions
You say you’ll do all that u mean to do,
Eventually.
Like,
The trip to Paris
Or a trip back home.
Like,
The prayers you’ve been meaning to say
And that coffee with friends.
Eventually.
Because there will be time later.
Yeah, the thing with time is
There’s plenty of it
Until it isn’t.
The thing with time is,
You never know with time.
With time, you never know.

PS: Blank verse, not much structure and zero edit. Sorry, but this is how it felt – raw. Time is bitch.
