Killing Time This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Itis a management of life,
The earliest of Mankind.
It's the first thing welearn
As well as the first we let slide.
It is the cause of boredom,
Thecause of lateness,
The cause of anticipation that grabs onto yourliver,
Envying the young, killing the weak.
Reborn with baby new year,
Dying with Grandfather Time,
It's a countdown to life,
A countdown tillwe die.
There is too less when we need it more,
Too much more when we needit less.
I'll ponder this forever, more perhaps, as I
Watch whatgrandfather does the best.
