525,600 Minutes

525,600 minutes
525,600 moments, oh dear
525,600 minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets
In midnights and cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter in strife
525,600 minutes - how do you measure
A year in a life?
- Rent

In friendships lost, in people alienated
In tears, in emotional breakdowns
In breakdowns of communication
In the number of people who chose to walk away?

"Measure your life in love."

You have been tagged! It's a fun little game. Tell seven random little things about yourself and tag seven other people.
Have fun!

Heather, that was a very nice poem. Dark and heartfelt and substantial. I hope things are going all right for you. Peace.

Thanks Adam, I didn't even really think of it as a poem - just a collection of random thoughts. Frankly, I didn't even notice the repetition of "breakdowns" - though now I see that could be a rather effective device ;-) So yeah, let's just pretend I meant to do that, mmk?
