The clock is always ticking

We will stop our earthly
Journey some day soon;
Life will never stop
Its journey;
The clock will always tick;
Even when it goes bad,
It will keep ticking;
Always on the move;
Seen or unseen;
Heard or unheard.

The clock is always ticking;
Time is always on its toes,
Running, if not flying;
Seconds grow into minutes;
Minutes grow into hours;
Hours grow into days;
Days into weeks;
Weeks into months;
Months into years;
Years into eternity.

That is how the stream
Of life flows;
It never stops.
Always moving;
Though to our naked eyes
The world is standing still.
You have to keep moving;
Learning, growing, expanding;
If you stand still,
You are left behind.
