About the Poem

This is something I feel very strongly about. The appreciation of the time we have allotted to us, and what we do with each and every day.


You wake up each morning
and you have in your purse 24 hours of Life.
It is yours!

No one can take it from you,
You cannot get into debt,
You cannot draw on the future,
You can only spend the passing moment,
You cannot waste tomorrow -
It is kept for you.

We shall never have any more time.
We have, and we have always had,
all the time there is at any given moment.

Spend it well.
