I Just Don’t Have the Time

I Just Don’t Have the Time

 

I just don’t have the time
For things the way I used to.
Just don’t have the time to invest
Myself and my energy in people,
Places, and ideas that fail to produce
Much or anything of value.

I’m sorry but I don’t have the time
To invest in listening to people
Who never have anything good to say, and
Who try at every turn to bring others
Down to their level.

I’m sorry but my life is too short
To spend it in hating people who are just
Different than me.
My life is too short to spend it in trying to convince
Anyone of anything.
I just don’t have the time to get involved
With people who just can’t let other people be.

I’m sorry but I just don’t have the time
To listen to lies, to people who try to justify,
and rationalize disgusting behavior
simply because they want to.
I just don’t have the time to sit around
and groan, and moan, about all that’s
wrong in the world instead of living in wonder
At all that’s wonderful in it.

I’m sorry but I just don’t have the time
To get involved in your self-pity,
in your unending misery, in your callous disregard
Of other people and their feelings.
I just don’t have the time to listen
To people who try to keep so much of an open mind
that they can’t keep a decent thought in it.

I’m sorry but I just don’t have the time to listen
to the liberal left who scream about freedom,
but don’t have the guts to fight for it, and who
trivialize and make light of all the people who’ve died
so that they can have their precious rights.

I’m sorry but I just don’t have the time, and I’m
not going to take the time to notice the ugliness
Of people who can’t rule their own hearts with love,
and who make no effort to show any sort of gratitude
for the gifts they’ve been given.

I just don’t have the time. . . .
