Mark Anthony (X) Smith 1965 (Lansing, Michigan)

Time is always present, Time is always near, Time is always changing yet, frozen in earthly years, Before Christ we say B.C time had it's place now 2021 and it still show face, Feel the breeze time makes its way, Time is a blessing glance around and see, Time makes itself known, age is one spiritual and physical key, If I only had the time is spoken daily, You always have the time if you make the time, walk around, stomp if you wish, Let people know that Allah(God) Who Came in the Person Of Master Fard Muhammad, Whom Praise are due forever, does exist,
Time comes from way back before you or me, The Lord
says wisdom comes with age ,,,, in Time you will see, To listen/ Read this poem has taken Time .... Blessing you and me, Time does it rest or pulse for a brief.... All I think is busy busy, busy When rain falls from the clouds Time is in affect, then it dissolves leaving Time behind to show its effect, Time is always present, Time is always near, Time is always changing yet, frozen in earthly years.

    I truly enjoyed reading this poem because the word TIME is my favorite word. More than a word, it's variety of meanings and phrases have so much significance in so many ways. I enjoyed his perspective on it. Thank you for your Time Vivian Timmins
