A piece about confronting reality and overcoming its challenges.

Hours and hours

The clock's ticking quickly

Each moment seems long

Yet now it is gone

Hours and hours

I spend my time waiting

Expecting nothing to change

Losing grip on excitement

Hours and hours

I lie in solitude

Dreaming that sleep

Will bring rest to my soul

Hours and hours

The issues elude me

I don't see what's real

I see pretty fiction

Hours and hours

Until something clicks

I finally get it

My smile slides back

Hours and hours

I cannot resist

My heart's nagging voice

"Go! Live by the hour."
