I Should Care Less About Clocks - Poem by Steph N. Janusz

I should care less about clocks
and their artificial division of days
into hours, minutes, and seconds

And daylight saving time,
how nature must laught at humanity's
attempt to manipulate the day

For, in truth, nature
is the best time keeper
and we but amateurs

The moon waxes to full
And wanes to new,
While the sun rises and sets each day

Spring gives way to Summer which
gives way to Autumn, in turn, giving
way to Winter and then Spring again

Best it would be if
I focus on learning and the
beauty around me

Best if I smile and bring joy to
myself and others in our short time here
and I should care less about clocks
