The final tune, of the tick tock clock

If I had just one day to live
24 hours to feel complete
Would I race across the castle of my dreams
Hunted by the echo of the tick tock clock
Dreading the moment that fateful tune came to a halt
Chasing down runaway thoughts
Frantically piecing together broken promises
All while fearing the silence, the end of the tick, tock;

I would gaze up at the steps of this sky high castle
This floating montage of my life
And lounge upon the first step,
Resigned to enjoy these fated moments
Without fear or regret,
Resigned to enjoy this melody with those I love
This farewell tune played to me by the tick tock clock.

    ...The sound of time ticking down to the finish...I could feel the frenzy rush in the first part of your poem, but the second was relaxing, despite 'knowing the end is near.' Congratulations on this fine poem:)

    Hi Samir-- what an interesting take on the challenge-- I was thinking along these lines myself and yes, I think sometimes it is more worth it to just stop and just ponder-- best of luck to you if this is for the contest :) -- nikko :)

    Dear Samir, wonderful wisdom conveyed in this amazing free verse. I find Free verse very difficut to write. You are a master with this form. Thank you for your very kind comments. Lainie

    Oh, this is very very nice. I agree with you. WHy race around like a demon? Just relax on that step looking at all that was good. I hope this does very well in the contest. One that I have not even attempted yet. LUv, Andrea

    That's the best way to approach the end of one life and the beginning of eternal life. No need to pace frantically -- look forward to heaven "without fear or regret." Well stated, Samir! Best wishes in the contest. Love, Carolyn
