The truth in time

Time is the most precious possession the universe holds. It is powerful beyond all measure. It is loyal but also very unforgiving. Time will test our strength and will power. It will expose our weakness. Time will challenge our thoughts and emotions. It will be relentless in its endeavor to prove love unstable and lacking. Time will push boundaries. It will surpass limitations and barriers. Time will change you... Time will possibly break you... Time may even heal you... Time is not to be undervalued or assessed. Time can not be exacted, it is a gift, an allowance. We are given time so that we may discover who we were, who we are, and who we long to be... We are given time to uncover the endless possibilities that lie before us. We are given time to gain enlightenment, to learn, and to teach. We are given time to be free, to be liberated, to be alive!!! But, in time, you will always find a profound truth... Time is borrowed, only a certain amount allotted. It is owed all of your energy and spirit. You have to explode every day. Only slow down for those magical moments. To absorb all the character needed to become a philanthropic warrior. A guardian and a leader to those who do not understand the true concept of time.

Very well said Valerie. As I said in my poem "The Hardest Thing" when refering to the young "an ally for now, time's treaty is binding to none..." you nailed it here, Good Job!!! MC

I wish I had more time to hold on too. This is a very clever write. The only thing I love about time, is waking up in the morning and realizing I might have another chance in loving another day. And as a mother I love teaching my kids that time is precious and not to throw it down the drain... :-)... Linda

This is a very necessary piece. Time is our best friend or our worst enemy. Great job.
