Frustration comes quicker
when time is running out
how have we become so
dependent upon a man made concept of time?
How has it become that the clock
dictates my sad little life?
and it comes quicker when a layer of sweat
covers my skin because
summer is here
despite my objections and
air conditioning is an artificial
expense that does not
cut it when
everyone demands the money
your family
works so hard to pretend to have.
Frustration comes quicker
when expectations don’t meet reality
your name appears before me in
an artificial context
but not in any way more.
Frustration comes quicker as it gets hotter
and later
and the thought of now
dominates the thoughts of
later and
this is the time when frustration
settles into the core of my being
and destroys all
the patience I have left.
