Perpetual Motion



My life is like a clock

continuous oscillation

however, measured

every nanosecond treasured

hells bells are beckoning

is it time for a reckoning?

tick tock

Rewind the clock, I say

bless me one more day

bells melodiously ring

red-feathered birds begin to sing

my continued journey here

will be without fear

tick tock

As the pendulum swings

a frictionless pivot

first to the right

then to the left

mesmerizing motion

tick tock

My life so finely tuned

expect no departure soon

my life is like a clock

perpetual commotion

see no reason to stop

tick tock

    Clocks have a battery life, and can be recharged. The end is inevitable for humans, but perhaps, that becomes the drive to excel in a limited period of time.

    This poem is wonderful. I have the belief that even when our clock stops ticking on this side of the divide, it will even tick better on the other side.
