Life is just a moment in time -
a little dot in space
When you are born, you begin to die
every second, a hundred years
so relative, so absolute
You can't escape
the rapid passing of seconds,
nor can you turn back
the wheels of Time;
you can't even pause the toothed gears
aligned up in the heavens

The great ancient Clock
is ticking off moments, life-spans and ages,
seemingly unaware of the multiple dangers
man does experience
through the running out of sand
inside the hour-glass in His hand ...
