Poetry On Odyssey: Time Wasted

Poetry On The Odyssey: Time Wasted

Time flies so you better hold on.


Tick Tock

A true representation of life happens to be a clock

Every day it's ticking one agonizing second closer to the day we die

We allow each of these seconds to turn into minutes, and hours, then days and finally years.

Letting life slowly pass by

On average we live for 79 years or 948 months or 28835 days or 692040 hours.

One-third of those days are spent sleeping

That's 52 years or 629 months 19132 days or 459170 hours left.

Six years are spent eating,

That's 46 years or 557 months or 16942 days or 406610 hours left

90,360 hours we spend working.

You're down to 36 years or 433 months or 13177 days or 316236 hours.

40,000 hours spent studying and learning

31 years or 378 months or 11512 days or 276290 hours left

Wait there's more that is not accounted for

Like hours spent on the computer, in the bathroom, throughout childhood, on social media and even exercising

In the end, you are left with about 19 years left which is, to say the least, surprising!

And there is still so much more that were not even accounting

Time flys in the blink of an eye.

Don't waste it.

Spend it so that it can benefit.
