Time began counting backwards to start,
So slowly for me,
the breaths i took,
With the beats of my heart…

T’was the moment I was born into this world,
T’was when I was freed, yet enslaved to time,
Ticking away,till the earth swirled,
And listening to none,nor reason nor rhyme…

And its been ticking,like a waiting bomb;
Unwavering,resolute, yet without aplomb;
And many a time, I thought I heard it say,
“Pack up buddy,lets get on our way…”

Yet i’ve hung on,another moment,another day
And realised this, for as long as I stay;
As long as I don’t think or worry about it,
Time,that rascal,won’t hurt me one bit…
