Why did I leave late? Why is the traffic so bad? How long do I have to wait? This situation makes me mad. When I stay calm And just breathe When I realized Being frantic, sad, or mad Would change nothing, indeed Knowing that I have a choice To go through this trip Peaceful, calm, and composed Experience change Although I'm still late for the airport.
The desert's longing for the rain Is longing for drops of life Longing that will continue to be awaited Dreams that I have never achieved Time that never come back And all the opportunities I've missed
Forgive me Because I'm late And for my negligence, I missed you Forever, this love is always awake But the desire to have you has vanished A red thread of my fate has been severed
Under the shelter of the bewitching midnight sky I lie in bed and wait No colour is here Only the light from the moon It seeps through the blinds and the curtains in my room Sleep waits for my guard to let down Only problem is I never want to let anyone down So, instead I let my thoughts consume
i was late through no fault of my own at least that's what i tell myself just one of those occasions where try as you might the universe won't allow you to leave on time standing at the threshold one final pat of pockets to check i had all that i needed looking up to gauge the need for coat or umbrella i witness an inhumane globule of avian faeces viscous and creamy in colour and consistency exploding upon the path two steps ahead of me i see no sign of the culprit hearing only its cacophony of enjoyment or maybe disappointment drifting into the distance
