Time waits for no one, neither the slow nor quick,
often passing so swiftly, “Is this a cruel trick?”
Many waste it or simply don’t use it wisely at all,
moving slowly and without purpose, afraid to fall.
Yet time is a gift each one of us should treasure,
with it, our progress we can accurately measure.
Though it may take a while to reach our goals,
consistency and patience both play active roles.
Time passes so quickly ~ this we all must face,
we must make good use of it, while maintaining a steady pace.
So let’s begin now ~ for time is of the essence,
it is the key to our existence ~ the element of our presence.
