T.I.M.E

Tick

There is infinite power held by the ticking of a clock. One tick, one tock, is one second and that one second is counting down the millions upon millions of seconds that will make up your life.

Tock

Every second counts. Isn’t that what they say? You should make the most of every iota of time given to you because time is the one thing you can’t get back.

Tick

And what would you do with it, even if you could get it back? If you re-write the past then aren’t you re-writing yourself? Wouldn’t that change the very fundamentals of your existence?

Tock

Maybe you want to re-write yourself, reinvent yourself to become someone new. Maybe you don’t like the ‘you’ you’ve become.

Tick

You can lose things in one second. One second can lose your keys, your love, your life. But can you get them back in the same amount of time?

Tock

Such power in such a small thing. It’s terrifying that we are governed by something as uncontrollable, as untamed as time when we humans grapple for control over every aspect of our lives.

Tick

Control, that’s what time is. Time is order. Time is definition. Time is a schedule. Why stick to it?

Tock

Throw time away and what do we have? We have not years anymore, we simply have space. We have an empty tunnel that we can explore however we wish.

Tick

And yet despite all of our brains and our knowledge, we can’t break free of the shackles that hold us so efficiently.

Tock

Such power in such a small thing.

Tick

Will you watch as it trickles away?

Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock…
