Hourglass

Time will grant the time I need,
to enjoy life and feel complete,
to supersede,
conquer defeats,
firm on my feet, swiftly proceed.

Time will help me understand,
why life did not follow a plan,
no one is damned,
life is a span,
where some good things slip from gripped hands.

Time will ensure I succeed,
my wishes will become concrete,
all guaranteed,
life will be sweet,
every ambition will exceed.

Time will make good luck expand,
all “possibles” transforms to “cans”,
fortunes withstand,
wild dreams that ran,
learn to receive while feeling grand.

Time will grow like planted seeds,
lessons that pass will not repeat,
finally freed,
each day upbeat,
embracing life at lightning speed.

Time will one day stop and stand,
absorbing how it all began,
a grain of sand,
meets natures fan,
letting today lay where it lands.
