FATHER TIME

-By Stella McDermott-

“Father Time has his own way of doing things.”

I wish I’d known that sooner.

When things go bad, Father Time slows things down...

When things go good, Father Time speeds things up...


I’m the kind of girl who falls into holes, tells boys she has fleas,

Shows her worst knickers to the entire universe, in close,

Father Time slowed things down.


I’m the kind of girl who has panic attacks, jibbers in front of boys,

Tells the online world her mistakes,

Father Time slowed things down.


Until I met Noah Flynn,

Who made me realize I can be who I am and still be loved

Father Time sped up.


Until I was cuddling on the park bench

Laughing and talking, realizing how amazing life can be

Father Time sped up


Until I was accepted for being who I am,

And I was finally writing my own script,

Father Time sped up.


When my world came crashing down on me,

When I put my trust in someone and they broke it,

Father Time slowed down.


When the online world is against me,

When my best friend deserts me,

Father Time slowed down.

But when my world couldn’t get any worse, it got better.

But when my best friend came back,

Father Time did nothing...


I realized,

“Father Time has his own way of doing things.”
