Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years

Are used to measure the duration

Taken by a process, activity or event

As the clock ticks in clockwise direction

Time goes on

Humans grow up

The movement of time is irreversible

Once time is been used, it’s gone forever

Use of time plays an important role in our lives

You can’t see today again till eternity

The present is the most significant time

As it can decide future events, activities or accomplishments

Time is a non-renewable resource

 It’s an essential resource of every student and worker

A student who doesn’t have good time plan

Performs badly in their studies

A business grows when the business owner

Makes best use of time

In the utilisation of the factors of production

Life achievements require time

A student is expected to write their examination in a timely manner

Or else they may fail

A worker is expected to arrive at their workplace on time

Or else they may face disciplinary action

Some old mendicants

Had wasted their youthful times

The wise spends time judiciously

Because they know that

Each second creates an impact

In the lives of humans

Anyone who is always careless about time

Ends up in regrets
