Against our will, time is fleeting.
Seconds tick as if beating
themselves to an end.
We cannot pretend,
or defend our cheating.

Time and tide do not wait for man,
and we might think we have a plan.
Time does not turn back
and that is a fact
that impacts our lifespan.

So, in a forward march, we go.
And as we near our ends, we’ll know,
if we gave life worth
while we’re here on earth.
From our birth, it will show.
