Is it the tic-tic-tic of the clock

 

Or the smooth flow of time

That frightens us the most

As each second of each life is counted out

Or slips away

Uncontrolled

The loss

Moment by moment

Or unavoidable void looming

Unmanageably

Like a car going over a cliff

There should be more than this

More to life than loss

So let's pledge to ourselves to live

And leave death to others

Like the keepers of the graves of those that have gone before
