Counting down

I've spent my days counting down
How many hours left until the end of the day
How many minutes left until the end of class
How many seconds left until the microwave pings

I never considered what happens
To the time flying by
While I sit praying
It can go by faster

I never thought to count up
And enjoy the hours of my day
Or the minutes I spend learning
Or the seconds of anticipation

There is always something better
Lurking in the future
But when the future becomes the present
I'm still looking for something better.
