Time Paradox - Poem by val legend

Make the most of each moment,
for they become memories...

Time is the most paradoxical of all things,
the past is gone,
the future is not come,
& the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it...

They say 'even the river knows this: there is no hurry we shall get there someday'
Yet they will still say 'better 3 hours soon than a minute late'...

They say 'seize every opportunity; coz if we never try, we never know'
Yet they will still say 'life is all about waiting for the right time'

They say 'time is money'
but when we av no money
time is all we got...
They say 'time heals all wound'
well that's if only the source of pain is finite...

They say 'the patient dog eats d fattest bone'
Yet they will still say 'time waits for no man'...

They say 'Rome was not built in a day'
Yet they will still say 'a stitch in time saves nine'...

They say 'opportunity is a bird that never perches'
Yet they will still say 'everything has its place in time'...

They say 'time goes'
I say 'we go, time stays'...
They say 'time heals everything'
I say 'time kills everything'...

Whichever way u view it...
Whichever school of thought u support...
Whatever conclusion u arrive at...
We can all agree on one fact...
just as my friend cade hicks said
'Alas, the years slip by,
& from the day we were born,
we begin to die'...
