I Don't Have the Time


Notes. Homework. Test. Grade.

It's a neverending weekly cycle.

Every subject is the same,

Every class has the same agenda.

Iron. Change. Work. Drive.

It's a neverending daily cycle.

Every job is the same,

Every job has the same agenda.

Eat. Do homework. Sleep.

It's a neverending nightly cycle.

Every evening is the same,

Every evening has the same agenda.

Have fun? Go out? Let loose?

Sleep in? Relax? Take a break?

Those tasks do not fit into my schedule,

I simply don't have the time.
