    (haven't been writing in so long, this is impromptu, bear with me y'all)

    When time was on my side I
    could sit on the edge of my bed and cry
    turn to my side and lie
    On my back and ask God why...

    When time was on my side I
    would await my time to die
    would answer the phone dry
    wonder why elders thought me spry...

    When time became my enemy
    I had to redefine my destiny
    Look for all that I could see
    Change the way I portrayed me

    When time became my conquerer
    I had to stop being a ponderer
    Grow up and realize that a wonderer
    could never ever turn back the hands....

    Now I am regretting that I took for
    granted what could not be erased

    TIME

    TIME IS NOT A FRIEND
    BUT SOMETHING THAT
    MUST NOT BE TAKEN
    FOR GRANTED.
    IT IS SOMETHING GIVEN
    TO ALL AND THEN TAKEN
    AWAY.

    LOVE THIS POET.
    TELL ME MORE.
    PEACE!
