Tick says the clock,

the unending voice of time

it’s train, trudging on

Never waiting, never stopping.

I am Time

Nothing mortal has been able to stop me.

Nothing mortal will ever do.

Till the archangel comes.

Tick says the clock.

Time lost, is time gone,

Time wasted, is life wasted

The man chasing me ends up wearied

The man waiting for me ends up restless.

Like money is never enough.

Time is never enough

It keeps flying away

The bird of time never rests.

Who knows how much time we have left?

When the fabric of mortality will be taken from us

When time stands to tick no more

When man stands to boast no more.

Suddenly, the archangel shall blow his trump.

Then time shall die

Whilst we escape into


To the land where no man shall dirge, it’s demise.

Very inspiring poem sir, I have lost time which I wish I could gain back but alas it’s all gone and I’ve decided that I will not waste any more time again as long as am doing what I love doing most.

    When we do what we love time seems short. When we do what we hate time seems long.

While there is still time, man should make good use of it

Time is the most important & most expensive, yet the most unvalued resource ever. Part wasted can never be recouped, it get bye slowly but steadily. It waits for no one. Huuunnn! K’ara ole o baba.

    Amen o. I like that phrase “the most unvalued resource” So profound, so true Sir.
