My Time…

There are factors in life that you always have to consider — one of them is Time.

As they say, Time is gold. And once Time has escaped your grasp, no matter how much you want it back, there’s nothing you can do with it. It is forever gone.

Am I now losing my grip on Time? It does seem so. I feel like I am beginning to lose even my own identity. It feels like I am on a cliff hanging and anytime soon I’ll be falling. And there’s no one there to save me. That’s how I feel now.

When I was younger, I have always thought I have all the time in the world to do all the things I want.. I kept on procrastinating on most of my decisions thinking I can do it some other time. But it seemed I have lost all of it and I’m running as fast as I can to catch it but to no avail.

Until when can I feel this relentless battle with time? Can we be friends a little? Can it be a little friendly to me and slow down a little so I can keep up?

Should I just stop trying to keep up with it? Let it go and just go with the flow of life? But what will happen to me after?

The more I try to answer these questions, the more questions are added to my list.

No Time For God?

I have read this poem years ago when I saw this written on my sister’s notebook.. And after that, I have forgotten about it over the years..

Just today, I remembered this poem again after I spoke to a friend.. I asked him if he dropped by a church on his birthday to give thanks.. The answer I got was ‘he forgot since he got too busy the past days’.. I told him I was really disappointed not because he promised me that he’ll go, but because I was expecting too much from the person..

I see him pray before meals which I haven’t been doing so I was expecting that on his special day, he’ll give thanks to God that he is still alive.. Well, I guess, promises are really made to be broken especially if you really didn’t mean it..

Anyway, after that conversation, I immediately looked it up and publish it here:

No Time

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Godly duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of God to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d fear.

No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.

I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in His hands God held a book;
It was the book of life.

God looked into His book and said
“Your name I cannot find,
I once was going to write it down,
But never found the time..”
