A Race against the Clock

clock

An endless race we will never win

As the hands of the clock spin and spin

Ever so cunning this game we play

Makes us wonder if we’ve lived a day

A deadly curse dooming all mankind

This funny concept: the elapsing of time

In a grinding life we all believe

Because our goal is to constantly achieve

 Breath, some say to those who run

Take a moment to have some fun

We’re already late, the runners say

If we stop and wait it’ll all be taken away

A modern world revolving around success

Forbidding all to settle for less

“It’s your duty to society and to yourself”

But by the time you get there, you’ll have nothing left
