Portrait of my life



early morning checking my watch
Oh my i have to move fast
Jump off to shower making
My sandwich and coffee to go
Running till i get to the train
Hop in catching my breath huh !!! from fast running
I'm just reminding my self it is ok we'll be fine
While setting in the train

in my thoughts i wish
There were no delays in our
travel to fast track the time
So i could get to work just in time
i just have a glimpse of my self
Saying next time wake up extra early so you don't have to rush all the time.
