Five More Minutes

by Raunak Bhagat aged 13

“5 more minutes”
A line that I have said countless times throughout my life –
It helps me avoid hard work and strife
Be it for sports or a study break
“5 more minutes” is all I’ll take
Whether with a Rubik’s cube or on the cricket field
“5 more minutes” is my constant shield
As I engage with a math problem or go on a solving-spree
“5 more minutes” will be my knight in shining armour
People say this makes a person lazy
But this is what pushes me to the best
It helps me balance between work and rest!
I hope I will always have those “5 more minutes”
For “5 more minutes” is when I am at my best
