The Greatest Resource - a poem
It's available to all
Each one allotted an even dose
To use as each sees fit
Yet some throw it away while others hold it close.
When used correctly it fuels life itself
To use and not to be used
But still it's control grips us as we struggle along
Allowing the fuel to conversely consume us.
Although it seems that some have more
The fact is that all are blessed
Or cursed equally in constant amounts
Management being the only difference.
This precious gift must not be glibly handled
For some it will run out far too soon
For many it will frustrate and diminish swifter than they would desire
For all it is to be controlled, not to control.
Wisdom coupled with it can change the world
Joy and strength with it can heal the deepest hurt
Forgiveness can come with it if we allow it
If we just take time to make TIME the greatest resource we have.
