L is for Late

Good intentions, loose plans
Hope to make it, never can
Try for order
Try for shape
Lists and planners
Reminders, dates
Alarms
Calendars
Attempt to grasp
Time trickles through your life
No matter how much you cup
Like water through fingers
It’s tricky stuff.
Cannot hold it
Cannot shape it
Cannot slow the flow
And now
You are late
Though you tried
To make it so.
