Hourglass

I have only one life to live

I’m here to live it, regardless of your wishes

I refuse to squander the brief time

I’ve been so graciously gifted

If you want to, that’s fine

But, don’t waste my precious days

With your negative mentality

I won’t have my golden years stolen,

Strained into grains of flaxen sand

I’ll shatter the opulent hourglass

You’ve confined so much of my life in

I’ll take back the time you’ve

Tried to hold back,

That sand flowing through

My trembling fingers

I will take it all back
