Time

Every second passed in futility,

A breath wasted in pass times,

For pass times and idle talk in its serenity,

Lost moments one cannot mime.

How did you spend time today?

Wool gathering the ifs and buts,

Life is filled with mixed nuts,

Too many seconds wasted hours,

Preciousness of time you devoured.

How did you spend time today?

Life gives you sweetness and lemons,

Your mind chooses angels or demons,

Seconds it takes to create or destroy,

In delirium like the Prince of Troy.

How did you spend your time today?

Did you dance on top of hurt and pain?

Every moment of time you revered and gained?

To keep you resolute and sane,

No toxic thoughts you entertained.

How did you spend your time today?

When grief, discouragements didn’t weary their welcome,

Everything targeted you to benumb,

You turned the poisonous arrows away,

Time honored you in harmony and swayed.

How did you spend your time today?

When wellness turned sour on you,

Moments you choose to repair and sinew,

Instead of turning to excess,

Moments you saved from being distressed.

How did you spend your time today?

When everything seems to put you down,

In grace you embrassed, and gave it a crown,

In dismay and haplessness you did not drown,

For nothing seems to make you frown.

How did you spend your time today?

When everything misunderstood and demeaned,

Despite the truth you already screamed,

Justice seems a rosy dream,

You stood your ground when taken down times umpteen.

How did you spend your time today?

For the moments are a gift of every day,

As the sunshines we make the hay,

Value every moment, no matter comes what may,

Dallying as life’s drama unfolds and plays.

How did you spend your time today?
