Season 4 – 501 –
Time – Wednesdays – Reviewed and Revamped Extract from Nearly Three Thousand Fridays
Time passes so quickly, we take it for granted,
But the reality is that despite our age in this time,
It is not that long a period, in which we have aged,
Nor is it that far away that we reach the end of our line,
At fifty-seven as l am now, it is not that old,
It only amounts to nearly twenty-one thousand days,
Or nearly half a million hours of controlled,
Time, 30 million minutes, and in seconds well my eyes glaze!
The reality of used time is nothing really,
To some it might be seen as the blink of an eye,
Others again do not worry for they live carefree,
Never worrying if they have done enough to satisfy,
The inner clock face from behind their own,
Just living for the sake of one day following the next,
Weeks, leading to months, and again to years unknown,
Caring not for anything and never becoming vexed,
Yet l am always wondering, and constantly questioning all,
Looking back at what l have done with it,
And continually asking if l am standing tall,
Or have l wasted my time here on this lonely planet?
What do l have to show for the time eaten away,
By life’s extraordinary journey that we all walk,
Apart from where l am now, this very day,
Listening to the inward slow ticking of the clock?
To a world that cares not for difference,
In people, and everybody must be the same,
For that is what makes for balance,
Irrelevant to your name,
Yet l and others like me who see the world through eyes,
Of curiousness and questioning scrutiny,
Enjoying their nearly three thousand Wednesdays,
Understanding that time as short as it is, is always full of beauty!

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Oh no, l knew this day would come, for years l have feared it, now it’s here!
Have you noticed how quickly time passes by? The ticking of the life clocks continues to do so whether you are aware or not of its presence. Most people rape time without ever thinking about it, wasted time is lost forever, meaning that we have to make more use of our time available. Making time work for us, instead of losing ourselves in its passing.
