Time – the giver and taker

Time – the giver of beauty,money and fame. Like a Bank lending money to its customers, time lends everything we wish. But one day the time will come back, to get what it gave. There is no running away and hiding from time. This is the perfect example of the saying – “Nothing is permanent”.


Once a strange man came to me,
He gifted me health and wealth for free.
My arrogant mind went footloose,
Never stopped gifts from misuse.

After years, he returned,
Took everything I earned.
As I tried my best to stop,
My tears started to drop.
