It's another variation of an often circulated poem, yet worth taking to heart. I was inspired to create my own statement around the value of time:

How do you realize the value of time?
Time is like air,
it's a background to everything.
It's always there,
and like things always there,
I can sometimes take it for granted,
or not use it wisely.
I yearn to spend my time like diamonds,
creating premium moments;
leveraging minutes for masterpieces,
upgrading conversations into communion,
allowing the brightest beams
of my nature to shine through,
as I live; a reflection of You.
