I write what I feel…

Time and Time Again…


Sidey’s weekend theme this week is ‘LATE’:


Use your time, don’t let it slide

Into the Great Divide

‘tween Heaven and Earth,

Misused, into the past –

Lost in the vast-ness of space…

Whether you dream dreams,

Write reams, run the race of life,

Just don’t waste your time –

Your gift from God –

On fruitless pursuits.

More precious than stones,

Silver or gold, time cannot be stored

For use on a rainy day,

Cannot be ignored as it

Catches you up and passes you by.

Too late, too late, you will cry

As on your deathbed you lie.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. While I completely agree with you, Denise, I also completely agree with another posting from today which I read earlier. They might seem to contradict one another, although of course in fact they do not. Anyway, I though I would share it with you.


  2. Oh how true, Denise. A boss of mine, when I was much younger, said to me “This minute, this hour, this day, this week, will never come again. Use it well.”


  3. ah def dont waste your time and talents…hey there is a parable about tht…smiles….we arent promised how much time we have but if we are going to be good stewards we will use both….


  4. Very sound advice, adee. 🙂


    • I think the best life is one where one’s time can be spent doing something one loves, eg creating, without being influenced by financial considerations.


  5. time is such a problem, it keeps speeding up
