Only a Matter of

Some are ahead of it; others are behind it. 

Some race against it; others are in the nick of it.

We all stand the test of it at some points in our lives.

A matter of, a stitch in; crunch, borrowed, lost.

It tells.

It heals.

It flies.

It is of the essence.

It stops.

You can have a hell of it, or the best of it.

You can bide it, make the most of it.

You can waste it, be pressed for it, have a lot of it on your hands.

Take yours, don’t pass it.

Invest in it, don’t kill it.

Arrange for it before it’s up.  

It’s only a matter of time.
