We ain’t got no time

Finished Work, My Writing, Photography, Self, Series

1

We ain’t got no time
Spite of what you thought
We ain’t got no time
I’m not something you caught

Should’a learnt from your mother
Not watched your daddy’s back
Should’a grasped those moments, son
Before all her world turned black

3

There’s a man with flowers
Pure daylight in his eyes
There’s a man with walking shoes
And he’s wandering ‘cross my mind

So we ain’t got no time
Spite of how you try
We ain’t got no time
You’re not flying high

4

Could’a learnt from your sister
Who travelled half the world
You were only sixteen
When your future was unfurled

There’s those murky waters
You stare into and smile
There’s that godforsaken house
Where all your time you wile

5

See we ain’t got no time
You’re paddling downstream
We ain’t got no time
To be glaring at no screens

6

I’m sayin’:

We will not be here forever
You cannot be there forever
And I won’t wait for you forever
We ain’t got the time
