TIME~by Gaudencio Balongcas


 

 

TIME

Time’s as precious as gold that nobody can hold,
Worthy as diamonds and with an endless fold;
Greater than man’s power, it’s sometimes meek or bold,
It moves swiftly as death silently and untold.

Time controls the whole world from beginning to end,
Life’s under its shadow to follow and to bend;
No one can cut its hand to stop and to rend,
Nor redirect its course for the chances to lend.

Time is immemorial for working hand and mind,
Whose failure or success is lagging or behind;
It has the elements that man is ought to find,
It’s the truth and wisdom in the heart of mankind.

Time is the gist of life and the substance of death,
Living is the pathway for such a wondrous breath;
While alive and kicking let’s maintain our good health,
To make our time noble and equal as our wealth!
