Never Givin Up

Again and again I cry

Again and again I stay

Again and again I sigh

Again and again I pay

Again and again I try

Again and again I pray

Always in Demand

Someone’s always watching me,
Or racing to beat me.
It seems they can’t live without me!
In the morning I wake them
When they tell me to,
Yet then they often get angry
And hit me!
People are always saying I move too fast,
Yet if I stop, they get upset!
I really don’t understand the logic of it all,
But then, I’m just a clock!
