Time was never ours and it will never be. So why do we still continue to let it fool us everyday ? Why do we think Time will allow us to do some things later ? Just because we believe we have created Time doesn’t necessarily mean we own it. We think we can trust Time but think again, can we ? the moment humankind defined the passage of daily phenomenon of day and night as flow of time, The Almighty gladly accepted it as a payment to settle our debts even though we never intended it as one. Time became an aid to God to govern us but for us the aid was to become a curse. Its pact with the heaven and the hell insured its immortality and we always thought Time was with us, we could possess it. As we evolved we understood that unless we showed some respect Time would ruin us. But then we were humans, the most selfish bracket of organisms, our ego blinded us with the wisdom that we could work against Time. We continued to procrastinate that Time will give us enough space in future to transmit our love to our loved ones. Every time we committed such a sin we experienced a loss a very heavy loss, why ? Because our actions were an insult to Time.
There are enough problems that exist right now at the global level, at the national level and finally our own personal ones that require an immediate response. If our leaders still believe that through endless talks and negotiations they can create a better place, I am sure our doomsday is not far away. No I am not a pessimist, it’s just that an affirmative action in the right direction is the need of the hour. Drafting cumbersome policies is not gonna help us and will only delay the results which is intolerable to Time.
Think about it, Nature should have been eternal right but it isn’t, the most beautiful of flowers wither away one day like the flaking of some glossy paint. Look into your own life, whenever you have decided to iron your clothes the next morning instead of doing it that moment itself there is a power cut waiting to greet you good morning. It’s not by chance, this is how Time works. It works as it wishes to, it is ruthless and commands utmost respect. So I request you please don’t think that just because you pray to God Time will spare you. Do whatever you can whenever you can and just keep doing things as they come your way. That’s the best you can do.
In the end I will share some lines from a song called “In the end” by Linkin Park 🙂
“….Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
(It’s so unreal)
Didn’t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on but didn’t even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go…..”
