The Last Time

When was the last time
you said,
this is the last time?

What did you tell yourself
The very first time?

And what about
all the times
no one knew how many times?

How did you feel
The very first time?

And what about
the last time you said
the is the last time?

But what does it matter?

After all,
Don’t we have
only one last time?

And so,
what does it matter
how many times you say,
This is the last time?

  1. The last time I said ‘This is the Last Time’ was probably just yesterday about my chronic procrastination. And i just got called out for not updating the attendance sheet, guess why that is, PROCRASTINATIOOONNNN!!!😃😃 I’m working on it though.😊 Great piece, perfect reminder and yes very timely my friend.☺
