Six Word Fridays: Seconds

these seconds they tick tock away

precious little seconds make up days

we often take them for granted

forget the blessings we are handed

we watch the hour hand crawl

paying seconds no attention at all

losing precious seconds to sloth, strife

these seconds added up equal life

one second take, a moment make

don’t wander off-pay close attention

if you stray, come back! For seconds.
