Take a Leap

Every four years

we get an extra day

to do with what we please,

not to waste it away.

We carry on

as the soldiers we are

and change nothing at all

which never gets us far.

For 366 days

is a luxury indeed

as we always wish for one more

in our hasty greed.

One extra day

may not seem like much

but spend it being grateful

and don’t use it as a crutch.
