Wish It Away!

In our short lives how often do we wish it away

waiting for hours to get out of our daily work

or for each weekend to come to go out to play

some do not have or want jobs so just shirk

still getting ready to get out for some fun

others like lounging about soaking up the sun!


No matter what the pace we head to our demise

ruled by the never ending clock we just wait

when one is young we race to get to adult size

wishing years away to get out the school gate

onto university or starting those first time jobs

some seeking trouble destined to be slob’s!


There is no end to wishing away our allotted slots

those marriage vows hoping it would last and work

to the dreaded divorce too many must yearly face

that can go on for years where hidden issues lurk

letting minutes fly by wondering where it has gone

for some lifes far too short and others it is too long!


Those who are fit enough to cope and in good health

being elderly has no worries this is great

but many who have struggled to live it must be hard

precious moments we do cherish

we can only make the best of the time we are given

as to our demise our short lives are driven!
