what you’ve got

what have you got?
How do you define the getting?
who will you be accountable to,
when it’s all over
and you spent more than half your time
like this?
repentance comes in many forms.
I make my amends
by laughing
each smile you see
making up for a moment wasted.
how much time
do you really think you have?
I fear for you
too much can go wrong
when you’re not looking.
