A minute ago,
You were in history class.
Now get to English.

A minute ago,
Your day was going perfect.
Failed math test stares back.

A minute ago
You were mixing chemicals.
Counting minutes down.

You exit the school.
Plotting away your weekend,
Replying to texts.

A minute ago,
You were crossing the street-alive,
A car swerves at you.

Past moments flashing,
As you’re lying on pavement,
Blood flows endlessly.

People run to you,
There’s nothing that they can do,
Your minute is up.

lol. It made sence to me. So i guess it did make sence :p (i'm not so sure 'bout the rest of the world :p)

Lol. In my cynical opinion i think that its not just teens that are materalistic, i think its all humans. Just want more.

By the way thanks for the feedback :D

Amazing :D I love poems about time.. Even though I actually which time was never measured. Its such a pain when it is, cuz then you're wishing for it to go faster and lose the value in it. Cuz you never know how much time you have left. As your poem proves :)
