Treasure Island

Timepieces (Free Style)

The clock of life never ceases at all,
God is everywhere, and everywhere with you and me;
And we don't really know, when we will hear His call,
So let's enjoy life the best we can, today and everyday!

You should treasure the time that you hold right now,
Appreciate everything and cherish all the love you have you know;
'Cause tomorrow, who knows? you may have it not,
And all that you really own, is this precious time, right now,

We're sorrounded ourselves, everywhere and anywhere by lots of clocks,
We carry them, we wear them, we awake and sleep with them everywhere we go,
We are slaves of time you know, we keep them in buildings and every room of our home,
We buy them in silver and gold, and in every metal, brand and style, they can be big or small you know.

Some are expensive, some are cheap, some are very pretty and some are ugly, and time doesn't care if you're young or old.
They keep us organized and give us time to plan the things we need to do, and to me time is more important than gold.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
