The Element of Time

When did it happen?
When did selfishness
take over the drivers seat,
and throw humanity
to the back seat in shame?

Somehow we have let the element of time
overpower the kindness in our hearts.
We let the element of time
decide how we act or react
to different situations.

Remember when as children
an hour felt like eternity
when doing something we didn't like.
Now we rush to places
we don't like and somehow that's O.K.

As children we always found time for friends,
now it's lucky if we take time
to maintain a friendship.

When will we awaken and see
what we as individuals
are letting the element of time
do to us?

Welcome to the family! This is a very thought provoking poem. Are we not a society of 'fast' food; 'quick' serve; 'instant' this and that? Maybe the need to succeed has taken away our ability to 'take time to smell the roses'?

Thank-You Poet devine for your response, and your welcome greeting. When I began this poem
I was thinking about how people are alway's in such a rush driving in their cars, ignoring other people they share the road with.
