The Little Alarm Clock That Could

The little Alarm Clock That Could

Once upon a time, the alarm went off.
It was out of reach, so it just kept on going.

It’s not a big clock,
and the alarm is not really so loud,
but it is persistent.

It never seems to stop on its own.
It will wake you.

But it’s out of reach.

Once upon a time, the alarm went off.
It was out of reach, so it just kept on going.

I thought I could wait it out,
but it just kept going, and kept on going.
Like a dream that wouldn’t ever back off.

Like life itself, it just kept on going,
And going. And going.

And going.
