Tick, Tock, Ding, Dong

Tick, tock, tick, tock…

The clock never stops ticking time away;

Even if it stops, time still moves on;

Telling you when to go to bed and when to get back up;

When to work and when to take a rest;

Constantly reminding you that another year is coming to a close;

And yet another one to start;

Keeps you wondering whether your resolutions and goals have been achieved;

Whether every passing moment has been worth your while


Ding, dong, ding, dong…

Opportunity keeps ringing the bell on your door;

Waiting and hoping that you would hear and come open it;

It rings for a time and then stops;

Then tries again and again;

Sometimes softly; other times a little harder;

Not wanting to turn away without seeing you first;

May come under the disguise of a challenge;

Like looking for a pin in a haystack


While time is ticking away like tick, tock, tick, tock;

Opportunity is ringing like ding, dong, ding, dong;

Both cannot be retrieved when lost;

Within each tick, tock is a ding, dong;

A time to find something worthwhile to do;

No matter how little or insignificant it might seem;

And within each ding dong, you can hear a tick, tock;

Reminding you that time and tide wait for no man.
