The world keeps spinning faster.
Can’t think about today
Tomorrow is almost upon us!
Gone are the days when time
Was a universal commodity!
There was plenty to go around
And everyone owned at least a little!
Now more precious than anything
Time slips quickly through our fingertips
More often than not, wasted…
On things that in the end
Simply won’t matter!
The concept of family…
Reduced to dollars and cents!
Children growing up without parents
Expected to learn moral values.
Parents struggling to raise children
They don’t have time to teach…
Not if their children are to be fed!
And the world keeps spinning faster!
Most of us focus on the future,
Material gains, the good things in life
But what about today?
Do we take it for granted?
Inevitably…moment by moment …
Precious time is slipping away.
And who knows? Today may be all there is!
