As the world turns on a dime

What isn't a matter of Time?

🕰

Days became weeks

weeks bled into years

then led to now

and so on to the future.

đŸĻ‰

Old news that holds true

to date:

The calendar flips the pages

of fate.

🕰

That which is ever passing

can never be forever lasting.

đŸĻ‰

Lickety-split!

Tickety-tock...

Round and round it goes.

Where it quits

When it stops

Not a mortal soul can know.

🕰

These hands carry you

o'er plains and pains and

plans

'til at last they bury you

underneath the sprinkling

sand.

đŸĻ‰

Who has wasted it

and yet made it?

🕰

Never play with the day.

The stakes are far too great.

đŸĻ‰

Think a second

before you wreck it.

🕰

You can win it

if you have a minute.

đŸĻ‰

Spend an hour

when it spins dire.

You might get inspired

and then empowered.

🕰

Don't let the moment

become an opponent.

No you can't own it

but it can be a component.

đŸĻ‰

That moment offers momentum.

It's the rhythm of The System.

🕰

Years are the gears

operating a lifetime of Earth

vibrating as we're hesitating...

let's call it clockwork.

đŸĻ‰

It's ok to hang by a thread.

What's distant isn't instant.

Progress can't be compressed.

String the thing out instead.

🕰

Time will eventually

bandage it

if you diligently

manage it.

đŸĻ‰

Once upon a time

so goes the tale

and in the ending

What'll your time tell?

🕰
