And time passes by
without counting the millions of seconds that go by in a year.
And time passes by
without counting the amount of times we blink in a day,
unknown and misleading.
Over 3,532,467 people in this world
and not one person with the same fingerprints or identity.
12 months,52 weeks,7 days a week,
what do these numbers mean to you?
17 years of my life,
each minute passes by with 60 seconds in between.
The amount of outfits you go through in a week
and the amount of shoes you own.
Do they add up to the amount of bad going on in this world,
or the amount of good being done?
Do they add up to the amount of money you spend on useless things?
Do you ever think you can spend your time differently?
Just an hour a day to help those in need.
You learn to count to ten when you first go to school,
but there are so many more numbers to discover
as time goes on.
