When will the time be up? – Poetry Writing #12

This is another poem that I wrote myself.
I hope that you enjoy it!
The title is ‘When will the time be up?’

An island all alone.
The sea all around.
Trapped but looking.
Looking but lost.


Where are you?
Where am I?
What do you want?
Why are you here?


To bear the sea,
Is all I can be.
Why must you see?
That I want to be free.


I wasted my youth,
Searching for the honest truth.
Old people tell me to keep going,
But what am I owing?


I count down the time,
Told to get in line.
I got full marks,
But yet he always remarks:


Go!
Do!
Study!
Work!


When will the time be up?
When will the time be up?
When will the time be up?
When will it all be done?

When will the time be up?

I write about chess and books on my blog at FlyIntoBooks.com I love reading books - especially non-fiction books and science fiction books. I am also a really avid player of chess on chess.com.

    Hi AJ, nice to meet you but I’m a bit confused … your blog is mainly about chess but you add poetry and book reviews. Is this poem your composition or from the book you reviewed?

    Much easier when we set our own goals rather than be pushed by others to study and work 🙂 Welcome to WP 🙂

      Hello! Nice to meet you!
      My blog is about books and chess! =)
      I have also been writing some poetry and short stories too, so the poems are what I have written myself!

        Nice one … yours is a website rather than a WP Blog?

          Yes, I try to make some polished posts before posting!
          It takes a little longer for each post, but I feel like it’s more like a portfolio feeling instead! =)
