No time to write – Instagram poem prompt

Our minds are filled
We’re mentally stuck
On a mari-go-round
Of our past, present
and the  future.
We forget to live
We forget to write.

We’ve forced
Our minds
To be on lockdown.
We physically and mentally
On lockdown
With much time wasted
Cause we never
Knew how to spend
When we did have it.

There’s no time to write
Cause it’s left us
It comes at arms length
But it runs
Tired from trying
To get time.
When it comes
The motivation
To write gets lost.

We are on this loop
That won’t ever stop.
We want time
We got time
We had time
But now it’s gone.
There none left
For writing
