Clock On The Wall

Clarity and Focus drives you to a Vision,
A vision propelled purely by passion...
Clarity and Focus will drive your Vision,
Only when you began to listen...

Invest your time, spend less of it,
cause you simply can't afford it.
Once spent, this time have you,
gone will it be, somewhere in history.
The most precious gift given to thee,
Is time itself, as pure can be.
Time to sow, to grow to reap; Or
Time to merely chill and sleep...

An equal amount for you, for me,
To be whatever we want to be.
Equal amount to sow and grow, Or;
Equal amount to bitch and groan.
Which ever you choose its up to you,
The choices you make results in you.

tik~toc, tik~toc, tik~toc toc...
time goes by with every tik and toc
60 times 60 times 12 times 2,
is all the tic~tocs given to you;
60 times 60 times 12 times 2,
to ask, to see, to learn, to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
