The Gift of Time

A valuable lesson I have learnt in life is that time is a gift…a very rare type of gift.

It cannot be stored,
It cannot be kept;
It cannot be saved, we only save ourselves with respect to it,
It is used without permission or notice.

It is given without a request,
It is received, each passing day, piece by piece;
It is you,
It is all you have, to create other needs from.

It requires wisdom to harness
It produces riches, when used right;
It’s exercise will turn riches to strength,
It happens to all.

What have you done with yours?
What are you doing with yours?
What will you do with yours?
Who you become is defined by it.
