    I apologize for not knowing that
    before long I would have to answer

    For all the mistakes i made in my life
    I still wonder to this day
    Will I ever see the light
    Can I walk the rest of my journey without yearing to be set free
    Or will I cave to Temptation and try to set my soul free
    Youth can be the biggest fool of all
    Showing you only the glamour and no consequence
    After you fall
    And we all will fall in this life
    Time waits for no man only you can decide
    How well you use your time
    I wonder about my place in this world
    How will I effect it
    Can I truly change it
    Is my little bit of truth worth telling
    Then I see the wisdom in something I've said
    or done
    Put a small grain of knowledge in the mind of someone
    Then I know my time was not misused
    Because something wise I said may have come
    Just in TIME for you


    :time: :time: :time: :time: :time: :time:
    What is it exactly that you are doing with your time
    Could you be helping your fellow man

    :thinking: The time you waste could be saving a life :thinking:

    To all those who could have been saved if someone had have given a little time

    Thought provoking piece indeed. And time waits for no one, that same person you could have helped, talked to, or loved, might not be there tomorrow. Great write.

    thank you all for seein the truth in this piece. All I want to do is help save somebody life and I figured poetry was an excellant way to get the point across.

    Influence is everything when it can save a life.
