(29)My Childhood

Play Smart Work less

Poem by Lauriel Gray

Enjoy it while you can. Run from nap time as long as your sugar rush lasts, before you crash. Respect recess before your prefects turn from 5th graders to doctors grading your crammed midnight essay. Enjoy your time to play. Working hard without it will make something “proud-fit” more likely to be doubted. So don’t grow up too fast.


Seems it’ll all forever last, barely noticeable when time has passed from the big 5 to the big one with the 1 in front of it. Now you 16 and gunnin’ it, running with the tick of the clock pressured by the click of the toc wanting to be as everlasting as the thing that limits you.
