25th hour

If we all had that one extra hour

maybe we would have done right by our hearts.

Imagine 24 petals of a flower getting plucked every hour

and yet the count says 25 as the stars devour.

These are the rare ones who get to live a bit more,

maybe because they simply do.

Is it 24 to most, I am unsure

because living slows down what we consider as true.

Hidden in all those moments when we survive and salvage,

one needs not many but only 60 minutes worth of clock.

Living a life boils down to the word “manage”,

which when done right allows the 25th hour to talk.
