Sit and watch as the clock ticks time away
How long can I listen until it drives me insane?
How will I know when my time is up?
All of my best laying in waste
As time moves on without me
This much I can see
It will never stop and wait on me
When this realization strikes in my head
I ran to catch up with those ever moving hands
Running and chasing I can’t seem to get ahead in this race
Am I really running to beat the clock?
Time? The tick tock of the clock?
Time is something I will never catch
For the clock is cunning and sly like the fox
No matter what pace I dare to keep
Time is relentless it has never taken a break
That clock will always be ticking one second ahead of me
I will have to train and learn to keep its pace
That will be a greatness no one will ever defeat
