Lose No Time

hourglass-695275_640

Hurry,
before limbs are weakened by hunger.
Hurry,
before backs are bent by poverty.
Hurry,
before trust is broken by betrayal
Hurry,
before belief is shattered by violence.
Hurry,
before dreams are stolen by necessity.
Hurry,
before minds are blunted by ignorance.
Hurry,
before deeds are tainted by prejudice.
Hurry,
before hearts are blackened by hate.
Hurry,
before soul is twisted by greed.
Hurry,
before the light within is lost to the world without.
