At The Mercy Of Chronos

Tick, tick, tock
like an internal clock
our heart beats
continuously
reminding us
of how much time
we've got left!

Even seemingly
insignificant processes
like: the blinking of an eye
keep track of time
but, one never stops
to see that
every blink of the eye
measures every
decisecond!

In fact, we hardly
take a second
think about it
because, it would
just be an extra strain
on our brains
to keep constant track
of such a process!

Though, from the time
of our birth
till we depart
from the earth
organs like our lungs
work tirelessly
to regulate
every breath
we take!

Like most of the parts
in our bodies
we're also chasing
and counting time
because, it's
the most valuable
commodity
under the sun!

Though, the irony
of the matter is that:
one never knows
how much time
we've all been given!
