Poetry: “About time”

I was almost clever with the title there.

***~***~***~***

About time

Time it is the currency
That we all have to spend
Never can we save it
So we all must spend it well

Trickling through our fingers
The seconds ticking by
Moments of each of our lives
That will never come again

We each assign a value
To the hours that we live
And how we might fill them
If we all are free to choose

But freedom to do as we please
That’s a luxury for most
So money is a key for them
And a way to unlock time

Because we all have duties
That demand much of our time
We all must find that balance
So our time is not a waste
