Time 1.

You told me today
that the only thing we can ever
truly give
is time.
It is so limited
and so precious
that my heart sinks
whenever I remember
every time I gave my time
to someone
who threw it all away.
I could have been giving it to you--
Or better yet--
I could have given it to myself.
So often we forget
that time is the only true thing
with transactional value.
Sometimes it's better to invest in
rather than live a life
of timeless poverty.
