SONG – The Spinning Hands (A Song of Time)

time-dance-by-kmls

It is hard to slow down when we’re running out of time.
I could never accomplish what I want in a thousand lifetimes.
I keep spinning with the world like I’m turning on a dime
and more coins in the meter won’t increase the rhyme.

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.

I am but a grain of sand on the shore of eternity.
I am the smallest drop of water in the biggest sea.
But here I am in this moment in the great arc of history.
I was born for a purpose. There is only one of me.

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.

So what do I do with this limited commodity?
Do I waste it in the pursuit of mediocrity?
Or do I give it away like the gift it is to be
and live within the paradox of generosity?

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.
