Tick Tock


“Time flows the same way for all human beings;
every human being flows through time in a different way.”
Yasunari Kawabata

Time doesn’t stand still

It’s indefinite progression

It’s an irreversible succession

It’s a continuous flow

It’s a measure of existence

It’s void of resistance

Our spot in time today

Has already gone away

Tick Tock goes the clock
