Musings on Time

Twenty-four hours, with bookends of bed
Birth to death an unknown span

How do I use it?
On what do I spend it?
Do I buy it? Can I save it?
Is time a commodity
its value in doing?

What do I spend as I try to buy more,
only to end just where I started?
What do I lose as I spend what I have,
only to find this moment has passed?

Day length and length of days
One is fixed, the other a mystery
