While one wakes with the freedom to waste precious time another is risking his or her life to grant us such freedom.


 

 

 

TIME WASTED

An ordinary day

I woke with the sunshine

Extraordinarily bright

I pulled down my blinds

And lay there in wonder

What to do with the hours

The rest made me restless

To leave would take effort

Time wasted

Nothing gained

The other side of the globe

My neighbor dreams of his home

No sunshine, no view

Clouds made of black smoke

No blinds and no time

No sense to wonder

For hours are but seconds

Battle for cause

Survival is key

Protect and defend

A void, it shall wait

Such a selfless soul

Though eternally honored

In a bed made of clay

Just an ordinary day
