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

Sitting in class as the lights go out
Wondering what's going on.
The lights come back
And the clock's moving fast
Something is definitely wrong
Maybe it's a sign from God
Telling me I have to live on
Life goes too fast
And I don't want to miss it
So I speak for the first time
And am astounded by my courage
The clock reads 1:15
But it's really only 9:20
And it's still moving fast
I finally state an opinion
And people debate
But somebody's got to yell at the new kid
God send me an angel
To help guide me through
It's become a whole day
In the span of twenty minutes
Yeah, life does move fast

Life does go by really fast. Faster than we sometimes even care to say. I remember I used to want to be older to live out my life the way I dream of it to be. But really life has gone by quicker than I really want it to. We all need to realize that we need to live out our life to our full potential. Wonderful poem.
