Turn Back The Clock - Poem by Cynthia Sok

the child runs and plays
while the man works hard everyday
the child is carefree
while the man works hard for his degree
what is different is
the child can turn the clock forward when it wishes to
but the man cannot turn back time when it yearns to

    A Philosophical, and well delivered penning, Cynthia...Succinct, to the point, and mellifluously structured...Solid crafting, young lady...
