IT ABOUT TIME WE CAN USE IT WISELY OR WASTE IT

TIME IS BUT A TRINKET

IT IS HOW WE LINK IT
YOU CAN USE TIME FOR GOOD OR BAD
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY OR SAD
BUT WHAT IS THE TRUE VALUE OF TIME
PERHAPS NO MEANING CAN BE FOUND NOT EVEN IN A RHYME
IT SEEMS THAT IT IS TIME WE WASTE
LIFE HAS MADE TIME AN ABUNDANT HASTE
MOST OF US USE TIME SEEKING THINGS OF MATERIAL
FINDING HAPPINESS ROTTING AWAY LIKE A PLAGUE THAT IS BACTERIAL
IN TIME WE DONT HAVE ALL THE THINGS WE NEED
IN KICKS THE WEARINESS OF GREED
THERE IS THE POOR USING THEIR TIME ONLY TO SURVIVE
AS MATTERS WORSEN TIME STEALS THEIR HOPE TO THRIVE
IF WE COULD ONLY SEE TIMES TRUE WORTH
PERHAPS THEN MANY SHALL SEE LIFE WITH A NEW BIRTH
AFTER ONE IS GIVEN A NEW BIRTH
ONE STARTS TO VALUE LIFE HERE ON EARTH
OPENING OUR EYES TO USE TIME TO SEE THE THINGS OF REAL BEAUTY
FINDING A PURPOSE OF CHANGE INTO THE LIGHT AS A DUTY
AWAKENING THE SOUL TO USE TIME FOR GOOD SEED PLANTED
SEEING TIS THE SIMPLE THINGS THAT WE HAVE TAKEN FOR GRANTED
QUALITY TIME IS NEEDED TO SPEND WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
VALUING THAT THIS TIME WAS NOT WASTED IN THE END
ALLOTING TIME TO BE SPENT WITH THY CREATOR IN PRAYER
FINDING HIS REASON FOR DRAWING US NEAR TO HIM IN DESPAIR
TIS HIS WISDOM HE WISHES TO SHARE
FINDING AWAY FROM EVIL ONE MUST TURN
THROUGH HIS WORD AND HIS SPIRIT THIS WISDOM IS LEARNED
FROM HIM SPECIAL GIFTS ARE RENDERED IN RETURN
YOU FIND ONE IS GIVEN GIFTS TO BRING OTHERS INTO THE LIGHT
TIS EVIL AND DARKNESS THAT CATCHES THE SMITE
OPENING THE GATE FOR WHAT IS RIGHT
UPON WHICH THE SOULS OF MAN ARE ASCENDING INTO FLIGHT
