The Serial Killer Within

There are voices
within our heads
a strong voice
commanding us to kill
compelling us to
ignore the value of time
Tick, tock, tick, tock
seconds pass by
without us realizing
the few seconds we waste
used with a purpose
can make a huge difference in our lives
lurking online
living our life in social media
hitting the snooze button
When the alarm goes off
we obey the strong voice
and kill one second by second
just wasting our time
not caring about the
value of those few seconds
Tick, tock, tick, tock
infront of our eyes
loved ones grow old
and we lose someone
we thought that would always be there
There are voices within our heads
a soft voice begging us
not to waste our time
pleading us to think of
the time we could have spent
with the loved one we lost
If only
the minutes we wasted
could be added over the years
Tick, tock, tick, tock
there are voices within our heads
of a serial killer asking us to kill more time
and we blindly agree…
