Time is more precious
the older you get.
Your thoughts now monumental
and so are the regrets

Too late to start over
as you muttle along
What did I do right?
What did I do wrong?

Sorry for the way
your time was spent
Time to make it right…
need to repent

For wasting a gift
that was given to me
Being too self-absorbed
I could not see…

It was much wiser doing for others
instead of myself
Herein lies the true victory
Herein lies the true wealth

For no matter what you amass
on this terra, this chaotic earth
Is not the measure
of your true self-worth

And it is so sad
we’re just not able to see
The things that are real
were so deceptively…

Hidden like some secret
in a mystery film
That can only be explained
in the Heavenlies Realm

Of the One Who created
this lifelong test
When upon our arrival
we will know the rest.
