Timing – Author Veronica Thornton


Time is a fickle thing

it comes and goes

seconds can feel like a lifetime

years run by when it was just yesterday in your mind

time doesn’t fly it just strolls by

a minute turns into an hour

even when there’s no electrical power

the surge of life where time is the price we all sacrifice

see it’s funny that way

but sometimes time gets in the way

leaving many with too many regrets

because of what time they didn’t get

the clock winds up and starts the countdown

it changes momentum yet barely makes a sound

it creeps like a nightmare

then it strikes once it’s victims are found

time is loved and hated at the same time

we love when it’s good and want it to last

yet hate it when it’s bad and we want it to go fast

one thing for sure time will certainly pass

such a fickle thing

but we learn quickly timing is everything.

About the Author

Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.

Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
