Time


How many times have we heard the proverb, ‘Time Flies’…?
Almost everyday, I find myself wondering, where the hell did the hours slip away?? Swiftly, like a bird of prey, it just swoops away. So many things keep getting postponed for a Tomorrow; a Tomorrow that sneaks up on you faster than you expected. A Tomorrow that becomes a Today in what seems like a span of a breath and once again, Time mocks you.
Everyday, in the Book of one’s Life, a page turns, often without letting you register what was on it! And within the bat of an eyelid, the pages fly as if in a storm wind and you wonder; “what the hell happened? Where did the time go?”
One moment, you’re the new girl in the city. The other, you’re a citizen with an aim and a moment after that, you’re standing on a threshold of girl-hood and woman-hood, scratching your head, wondering, “Has it really been five years?? Really?? Then why does it feel like so short a time??”
There is no way of making this Time stop. Like a hurrying workaholic on his way to work, there is nothing big enough to stop it… No matter how you plead, no matter how you offer a bargain, no matter with what you threaten, Time doesn’t hold still. Like words on a deaf ear, your pleas, offers and threats go unheeded. Time flies and it leaves you shaken, always wondering how it all happened. You nervously look over your shoulder at every milestone and see how quickly you traveled from the last milestone to here. It gets unnerving. It scares you witless to see that so many a happenings had happened so fast. And so many a possibility filled Tomorrows are now deposited in the bank of unchangable Yesterdays.
“Time and Tide wait for no man..” They say…
And true enough… When the tide of time slips by, you can do nothing. Absolutely nothing other than stand on the beach and watch as the waters slip back over the sand, preparing for another wave….

  1. hmm! They talk of ‘Saving Time’ – Can I put it in a bank & get interest?

    • If that were a possibility, I wouldn’t have written this post.

  2. This just reminded me of Pink Floyd’s song, Time.

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it’s sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Now I can’t seem to get this song off my head, thanks Milie. šŸ˜€ šŸ˜›
