Catch me if you can

Catch me if you can

A Poem by Anima Akuffo
"

Escapism

"
Some people play with time
They say catch me if you can
They live just having fun
Soon there's no time to make a dime

Some people play with tides
They say catch me if you can
They pay no heed to the advice
That tides await no man

Some people play with age
They say catch me if you can
They think they can engage
And rewind the passage of time

Some people play with life
They say catch me if you can
They walk on fringes of strife
Like staring at the nozzle of a gun

Some people play with death
They say catch me if you can
They love cheap thrills and mirth
Till the body says not this one

Some people play with truth
They say catch me if you can
But then results are there to prove
You can hide but can never run
