If I Had All The Time In The World

Author: Mridul Jain, Class VI B

It is rightfully said, “Time and tide wait for none”
That’s why I say, “Live to the fullest, and dazzle your life with fun”
And if all the time in the world were in my possession suddenly
“It must be a dream”, I’d say to the inner me
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
KEYS TO THE LOCKS OF LIMITATIONS I WOULD’VE EARNED

If this really happened, it’d be magical, a dream come true
Answers to mysteries would come, like ‘Why is the sky blue?’
My timetable and routine would be flying all over the place I’d say to the judges, “No need to time the race.”
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
A HOLE THROUGH MY ROUTINE I WOULD’VE BURNED

But this possession of mine could also give unfortunate results
For instance, of extreme laziness I would experience bursts
I would also very well lose track of my time
For hours on end, I’d just be counting a few dimes!
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
I MIGHT’VE WASTED IT GAZING AT SMALL, SILLY BIRDS

Having all of the time of the world would be great as well
The pros of which, for you, I shall spell
I could use it for indeed a very good reason
To spend more time with my cousins in the summer season
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
MY TIME FOR ENJOYMENT WOULD BE TREBLED

As I brusquely nibble away at my toast
And my mom puts food into the oven to roast
I realize that all this should rather remain only a fantasy
As it would, undoubtedly, plague the minds of those who wish to imagine it in reality
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD,
I’D LEARN TO VALUE IT MORE THAN AN EMERALD

On a final note, I wish to say
Time is precious, at all costs, you mustn’t waste it away
For the darkness of failure would shake you down and make you pay
After which in your eyes only despair shall sway
IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD, I’D REFUSE TO KEEP IT, FOR IT WOULD MAKE MY LIFE TROUBLED
