Allowed to Fly


The Sands of Time

The sands of time
in your hourglass

You should not waste
on what doesn’t last

For they constantly fall
down toward our end

Be careful on what
your sand you spend

Don’t dream them away
on castles to make

Or the important things
you will often forsake

And they’ll run out
before you do find

The path you’re on
is the wrong kind

The sands of time
wait for no one

To the Father and Son
it’s time to run.
