Y.... No Time - Poem by Aufie Zophy

Some cutters of wood
cannot find the time
to sharpen their axe
to sharpen their saw

Some drivers of cars
cannot find the time
to service their cars
to fill up the fuel

Some human souls
cannot find the time
to read poetry
to pray or do good

    Life is all about prioritizing - putting first things first. But we so often miss the mark, putting trivial things first, and the most important things are next to last on the list. Great thought here. (Report) Reply

    '...Some human souls/cannot find the time/ to read poetry...' You've cracked the nut to enjoy the emotive readers...unfortunately Poetics are ideal time-pass to..I'd say material've reached the gamut ...but poets like you will not refrain to write for refineds...tenner...Regards ~ niv

    Cherry blossoms always find time once in a year to celebrate their life...we must find our time too to spice up life with beneficial things...If wood cutter not sharpening the axes soon it will takes more time to cut hard wood..axes got blunder in each cut. and car without fuel will cost driver to walk and takes more time compared to a bit time sacrifice to service/fill them with fuels...So we can see if we not use thing correctly we will not get any benefit but charge on our life....time can save future time or even cost to consume more time...and time is a starter for our time an investment it is a same thing, we have this life and life has the time to stick together, so what use of life if the whole time we spent is to waste it, so we never see how important life we are least fight for better life, it is the best and worthier than do nothing..we making life more life in saved time...It's okay if our life is not good currently as remember that's like a wood cutter, we must spent life better to cut wood...sharpening it! fight for life, and do many deeds too_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

    That's what people are like. They are so engrossed by life they tend to forget the necessities. Good thinking. Thank you for sharing (Report) Reply
