Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

(August 1,1982 / Kingston, Jamaica)

Power of Time


I am absolutely convinced that despite the pervasive presence of perpetual cruelty, injustice, and greed in this world, good will eventually triumph over the forces of evil, restoring equity, peace, harmony, and respect once more to all of humanity. This is so because time wills it.
Time laughs at the vain faces of men. It is a formidable force never to be underestimated. It heals all things, restores all things, prove all things. It decides all things, exonerating the innocents. Time waits on no one. It is not still, but extends itself to eternity, dispelling its supreme justice capriciously. Although it robs us of our youth, and banish all men to the dust Time willingly shares its wisdom and strength with the young thus giving continuity to this earth.
Time! Many have tried to unlock your mystery, nevertheless all efforts have been made futile. Time will surely outlast us all. Time is pricelessly golden. The sands of time are moving at steady pace, and though it may seem unkind at times, confusing at times, unfavourable at times, I reserve every confidence in its power to make things right in the end. Time will surely absolve me. It will give me absolute justice; my true reward and my eternal peace. Time will make me one day completely fulfilled and ultimately enlightened. This of course will happen in only a matter of time.

    Time is that cosmic beat that builds and destroys and the personal and collective dramas of human kind unfold in the vast timescape! A wonderful write about time, ringing with hope and optimism! ! Yes, positive mammoth changes can possibly happen in only a matter of time!

    time cannot be transferred, stopped, rescued, revoked or retained. It passes through infinity leaving behind another time (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
