Is your own.
Sometimes it becomes so second nature
We don’t realize how distractedly
How slowly we reckon
With things that are no longer serving us.
From mindless scrolling
To second guessing our every move
We can waste our own time
In ways we would never accept
From someone else.
As work and education become
It becomes apparent that
The increased independence calls for
Learning to value and manage our own time
With as much thought and intention
As we would for hope from someone else.
