Sands of Time

Down the path, that’s gory and wild
Running the race, old and child
Some take breath, sweet sublime
Making mark in the Sands of Time

Flow, it will, fast or slow
Some are dark, some would glow
In such frenzy, avoid the slime
Be a beacon in the Sands of Time

Easy path have gifts galore
Most are cheap, spread on floor
Need to spend just a nickel or dime
Wise get pearls in the Sands of Time

Receding flow would bring wisdom
Whether in a Palace, or in a Slum
Pick them smart, listen to chime
Wisdom stays in the Sands of Time

Make your stay, worth moments
Elicit praise, worth nice comments
Live your life, like a rhyme
Be the light in the Sands of Time
