Time is the progress of existence that tells us of the past, present and future;
Although we often wish it would give us more time, and tell us a point in time that is sooner.
It tells us the hours in a day, and how many seconds are in a minute;
Although how long we get in those crucial seconds will end, having a certain limit…
There is a time for everything, just as the saying goes,
Whether it is a time to love someone, or a time to loathe.
There is a time to have a feeling for everyone you meet or see,
Whether you feel happy or sad, trapped or free…
There will always be the time to have the freedom of speech, and also the right to silence.
And there is also a time for peace, and a time to start a war or a fight.
A time to keep your possessions, and also a time to lose;
A time to be smart and responsible and a time to have fun and amuse.
Time doesn’t wait for you, no matter what you say,
No matter how much you plead, no matter how much you pray
Or if it is a time to laugh or a time to cry,
A time will eventually come in which we will be born, and also die…
