The Clock Ticks On

The clock ticks on fast past our physical prime
Eventually we all become victims of time
We quickly lose the energy of youthful elan
And the longest lived human life in time is not a long span
The pauper the celebrity and the billionaire
The Reaper of lives any life does not spare
The one who treats every life as the same
Is not one who respects money and fame
Time that rusts iron becomes everyone's foe
The famous athlete of five decades ago
The former National champion is now walking slow
The years on the best of them eventually show
The clock on our lives ever keeps ticking on
And at the stroke of midnight today will be gone.
