One Single Minute

It's amazing how they can pack so many seconds into
One
Single
Minute.
It's always fluctuating, never constant, though they say
It's
Always
Sixty.
But it really depends on what you want, how long you want
It
To
Last.
Want it to go fast? Well, that's too bad; the clock's
Still
The
Same.
Want it to last? Oops, sorry. Looks like it's
Time
To
Go.
It depends on the day, depends on your mood,
Depends
On
Everything.
A minute can be an hour, an hour can be a second, a second can be
Far
Too
Long.
They say a minute's always sixty seconds, but it could be
120,
30,
2.
They say an hour's always sixty minutes, but it never is, it's always
More
Or
Less.
They say the world's always moving, but I know we've all felt
It
Just
Freeze.
