Tick – Tock

the seconds, minutes, hours
turning to days
as the clock continues
to tick away

another week, month
another year
in the mirror
another wrinkle appears

applying make-up
that feels more like spackle
why do I bother
does it even matter

take a deep breath in……
then breathe out
relax for one second – then
continue about

your petty little life
in this great big world
does any of it matter
do you think any of it could

the clock just ticks away
time just marches on
you breathe in
breathe out
you’re dead and gone

  1. Are you really just “dead and gone”? Me thinks, not. The little bits and pieces you leave behind that you think are meaningless, can mean everything to someone else. It’s like, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” only with pieces of yourself. Not arguing your point and definitely not your feelings, just being my usual positively contrarian self. And now, as Forest Gump said…. That’s all I have to say about that. πŸ™‚
