Timeless world


Eternal tangle-
running through life to get more,
false hope of leisure
*******************************************
Frenzied nights begin-
cramming lessons for exams,
last minute learning.

*******************************************



This post is shared with Haikuheights and the prompt is TIME

  1. The first one is so true ... we run and run to get more and more, but eventually, do we get what would have made us contented.

    The 2nd one is my story :-P

    1. Sometimes we don't have a choice, we just have to run with the hope that we might get something more...
      We are all guilty of studying at the nth moment Amrit :D

  3. Both are so very true. It is all about enjoying the journey of life. Thinking of enjoying after the retirement, one would have lost and missed so much!

  8. I think it's one of life's lesson that we learn to take time for ourselves. Most of us are in that rat race for a long time before figuring it out. Time always ticking on whether we are ready or not.

  10. Lovely thoughts. There is no point in running after time, we do have all the time in the world and one has to plan and enjoy every second of our lives. My God, cramming for examination,I remember doing it every time just before last minute, and promising myself I would never do like that again.

    1. True Rama, but we cant avoid rushing through things most of the times. The exam time study promise is one most of us have made and broken many times :P
