In a minute guessed
Is also worn
Often wasted
Like the norm…

While feathers toss
Smiles only grin
To admit a knowledge
Truth the sin…

An hour now
As seconds gain
Like the worm
In sunburned shame…

Accept the loss
Like the hour before
Ignore the knock
And close the door…

And just like that
A year is gone
Hope is walking
After waiting too long.
