The Irony of time


you can and will

and it does not matter

what you are talking about!

just keep
and i will catch up.

i will train myself
as i am listening

and feel
the words
and your troubled world,

if you do not
and i do not let you talk

will fly by

I will have no more time
to go back
get back
think back
feel back

catch up
with what
you said
and felt.

if i stop
for any reason,
for any causes,
for any excuse

'i do not have time! '
'please stop
there! '

'why you are tell me that? '

it will be a waste
of my
your time

and the planet treasured time.

i rather

to you
and listen

that is my time

no more
no less
and I hate
unfinished businesses.
