A brief reflection on time, opportunity, and responsibility
The past is a rock, written and locked.
Kept warm in your heart or rued in the dark -
it's chiseled in stone.
The future is mist, where all choices exist.
Great hopes and grand dreams, or trivial schemes -
The present is clay that we shape every day.
The marks that we make, in time's kiln are baked -
but never alone.
Always take care that the story you share
is filled with the deeds you'd be proud to read
in front of His throne.
