The poem(s) are below...




To waste time is a sin among mortal man, 
But I believe this is not so.
For what is time but an idea? But yet it rules us.
We all fear we cannot control, but you can’t control an idea!
We worry about a fabrication, only because we fear losing it!
For we all know time is short!
