Time Lapse

Time

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

spent looking at the clock.

 

Hours pass, and days go by

The memories begin to fade

right before your very eyes.

 

You were there. Now, you’re here.

Funny how much can change

In only but a year.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

dedicated to that clock.

 

Your heart is filled with regret and sorrow,

and the truth starts sinking in.

Eternity sees no yesterday nor does it tomorrow.

 

Try you may, and try you might

reality you cannot phase.

The truth has won this fight.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Every second. Every minute

you are nothing without that clock.

 

Nothing more than a grain of sand

in this hourglass called life.

Only God can have the upperhand.

 

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Way too focused on that clock.
