“Time” is a poem inspired by having a great time one day and waking up the next.

What takes away but also gives?

What causes the days to go by?

To it, I’m one of the slaves

To its continuous doings, I comply


I wake up one morning

depressed because yesterday was great

Crying and mourning

I just had to take its bait


People like you inspire me

To write novels and poetry

but time seems circulatory

and starts the day over, as it seems


Time takes away but also gives

Time causes the days to go by

To time, I’m one of the many slaves

and to time’s continuous doings, I comply

Time is the one thing we will always be captive to. I really enjoyed your poem, the flow was lovely, almost like the flow of time. It was very well crafted and really showed the ways time can affect us.
