Tick tock

Rewind, fast forward

On and on,

Time just seems to move forward

Tick tock

Tick tock

Some leave

And others come

And others just come undone

Tick tock

Tick tock

Is time real

Or is it cycles

With the weight of gravity

Pushing us down

That is making us eventually go down, down down

Into the ground

Tick tock

Tick tock

Is ageing time,

Or just a result

Of a a type of weight?

Just an illusion-

A measurement to helps us understand,

But really- complicate-us and our fellow man

Do you understand?

The author's comments:

Several studies have indicated that cultures just went by the sun and moon cycles and such, but we have to make everything more complicated with varying time zones.  Ageing only occurs because of gravity and cell division, which is why species' ageing differs.  Are we making things easier or trapoing ourselves in a ticking time bomb?
