Big Things (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • Tick tock, tick tock,
  • seconds are winding down,
  • rock on, we’re still in town,
  • rocking strong on this rock.
  • Not every second is being counted,
  • for we’re rocking away in years,
  • as seconds tick away, we do not fear,
  • for seconds aren’t being counted.
  • As we think about the miles in year,
  • we drink and eat in boring seconds,
  • we prefer to deny reality, I reckon,
  • as we ignore the seconds without fear.
  • Just a second I would say,
  • yet I’m thinking of future years,
  • year be afraid, year be fear,
  • seconds ran out; gone a year today!
  • We don’t count in seconds,
  • we only count in years,
  • we’re thinking big in years,
  • yet big things only come in flashy seconds.
  • Big things are humble, I reckon,
  • unless the specific seconds are ticking,
  • big things might as well go on sleeping,
  • it’s hard to wake up big things, I reckon.
  • Big things are waiting for tick tock,
  • seconds are winding down,
  • rock on, we’re still in town,
  • waiting in years for big things on this rock.
