The Wisdom of ‘Time’…Use Wisely!

crystal walls

How shall this continuum
be clearly explained, or defined?

It has no master.
‘Tis friendless.
Who may command it best?
Who may counsel it?

People often plead with time,
Day and night.
But it fails them all,
Never hearing them call.
It has shut its ears.
And shall not hear.

The wise do not bother.
They continue with their given task
Because they know better than any other;
They learned.
For time proved itself deaf
And so they ask,
“Why bother to plead, then?”

    I’ve to check that out. But wow, my blog? For me to have been considered is even an honour, perhaps greater than I imagine. If you ask me, frankly, you’re versatile in your writings; Even read a fine poem you once wrote. You motivate & you bless through ways perhaps unknown to you.. Keep putting God first.

      Oh my God! God bless you for this reply. You know that moment when you see a touching comment and you need days to let it sink 🙏🙈 *this is one of those experiences* 🙋
      God bless you real good…This accolade coming from a great Poet is humbling. Thank you so much and thank God for His grace so far.
      Going though a blog remodelling phase…But I would fight the laziness and respond to the award invitation by God’s grace.
      Thank you again for the encouragement. Don’t you stop bringing out the genius in you and keep writing those great Poems 😃👏
