Every day, every hour, every minute, every second,
The clock’s ticking…
An impalpable entity, time that is,
Ruling our life, every minute, every second of it.
With its formidable presence,
Ticking away in the corner,
Counting down to the end,
Binding us in the chakra of this world.
The clock’s ticking,
And we, the prisoner of time,
Follow meekly, its arms…
Caught up in the worldly web.
The clocks ticking,
Heartless, unstoppable, eternal,
And our life, the captive,
Continues on trapped in a vapid cyclone…
