Don'T Have The Time?

Poem By Jim Yerman

Time has become oppressive to us...with so many places to go and people to meet
Since I don’t want to take up to much yours I’ll make this short and sweet.

Remember to prioritize your time in all you say and do
And don’t forget those people in your life who are also important to you.

Because when I ask and you say you don’t have the time...what I hear and what I see
Is that I’m not that important and you don’t have time...for me.
