We Must Learn To Spend Time Wisely - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

In the busy lives we lead,
As we hustle from day to day,
Finding time for you is hard,
As more and more problems come our way.

Trying hard to plan our time,
Between what’s important, what is not,
Wrestling with our conscience daily,
Is there something we’ve forgot?

If we worry about what we’ve missed,
Other things will get missed too,
Let us concentrate our minds,
On all things we’ve yet to do.

We must learn to spend time wisely,
Lest too late our time is done,
And our lives have been spent sadly,
Worrying about what’s yet to come.
