The clock is ticking


The clock is ticking

New year
new life
new world
new ties
New experiences
New friends
the new year has come again

Time turns
Calendars change
Everything isn't the same
sometimes we are standing still in time waiting
seeing crowds moving while quietly observing
Tentative are we noticing everything

New way of life things change
people change
for the good  or the worse

Time is ticking
can you hear the clock clicking

New day arises
with new surprises in store

Humanity is running out off time
no morels
no reason of living
suside and cutting and bleeding
self affliction
internal affliction
world affliction

the clock is ticking

A unique write. I liked its quick tempo. My grandmother will be 98 this April. I think she could relate to this poem more than anybody. Nice write.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
