Measuring what? Measuring cups, measuring spoons, measuring life.
We’re measuring our time.
Funny how a minute is so long and so short.
How a day has so many hours and so few.
Like a cup is so big and so little to so many.
Measuring what? Measuring comfort, measuring maintainability, measuring pain.
We’re measuring others.
Funny how much measuring looks like me assuring.
How often we measure things for others and ourselves.
Like we are scared the things we are measuring are running out.
Measuring what? Measuring time.
We’re measuring the seconds, minutes, hours, days, time; left.
Funny how we constructed something just to watch it fall away.
Like we only read time to see how much of it we have left.
