What Time is Good for You

What Time is Good for You

A Poem by That_Guy
"

As it passes us by lets take advantage of it

"
They say it heals all wounds and flies when you’re having fun,
Then why does it seem to drag on every time I go for a run.
I’m being told it’s running out,
So what’s this killing it all about?

Time is of the essence and cannot quit,
Now get up and  lets make the most of it.
A night out on the town,
Or just a day in the sun,
Don’t rush your choice nor pick just one.

Time only matters when I’m with you,
And never hurts more than I’m used to.
It need not be every waking moment,
But in my life you’re the main component.

Let this be the beginning and not the end,
For that wound time cannot mend.
And if it would help I’d make it stand still,
 So I’m sure Father Time would make do,
Now tell me, what time is good for you?

Yes this is indeed possible.
3 pages of reviews, to review or not to review.. eh I'm already writing, I'd be a weirdo to delete this haha.

Very nicely written. Nice rhyming to it.

Time only matters when I’m with you,
And never hurts more than I’m used to.
^ I love those lines the most. I can definitely relate.

Very well done, i love how the concept of time is used throughout this story. The way you compare it (when you run it drags) is incredible. The effects of time(as portrayed in the story) are very well portrayed as well. I love how you define how time changes in many scenarios. This is highly creative, congradulations!

A very well written poem, and a very true one as well. It really speaks to me especially these lines:
"Time is of the essence and cannot quit,
Now get up and lets make the most of it."
My two favourites. Very good, I love it.
