I hear these clocks all around me
Tick-Tick-Ticking noisily
counting forward
counting down
always onwards
constant sound
moving towards some destination
Good or Bad?
Clocks keep Time
Time is a prison
a Watchman
a Jury
an Endless Void
a Plan?
or Chaos...
Clocks hold us in their grasp
and we wonder how long it will last.

The author's comments:
I got the inspiration for it while I was trying to sleep one night, and I couldn't because the clock was ticking to loud. I took out the batteries to shut it up. Later I realized that was a bad idea because I didn't know what time it was... but it made me start to think about how important time is to everyone, and what it's means to different people.
