Of Time

Of Time ode

Photo by jenny downing

Eternal is this uninterrupted existence
An intangible spacious continuation
Past, present, future ‘s relative persistence
Time is inalterable and of limitless duration
Mankind is entrusted to occupy this infinite space
Some manage time accountably, others, who can tell
I ask myself, “where do I stand in this human Race?”
With musing and commitment , I vow to use time well
Being highly resolved, to let my brief earthly stay,
Lend to the planet’s betterment , and making haste
Squandering not these fleeting hours to go astray
My epitaph shall read, her time did not go to waste

A beautiful piece. Indeed time is precious and waits for no one. Our time on earth is short; but many unfortunately come to realise this too late.
