Time runs silently
One feels it too long
And one sees it too short
One enjoys
And one struggles,
One comes into the world
And one goes out of it
One suffers from problems
And one gains the benefits
One falls in love
And one loses, its love
Life and time travel together
But time stays on the journey
Whereas,
Life disappears
However,
Time flies continuously
And the last day of the year
It rounds off
And comes a new day of the year
For a new hope,
For a new fight.
Within the same circle of the journey.
