Element of Time


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.
