Time! Ephemeral...

Time, Poster color on Paper- art by ashok
Time! Ephemeral earthly days
Freaking, fleeing like frightened prey. 
With every tick the clock says, 
"Beware! 
Numbered is your noisy fray". 
  
  
Eternal race, here no one stays; 
Passing Puppets in this phony play. 
Colors melt and fall into grays; 
When 
the countdown ends– wither away! 
  
  
The mind thinks in surreal ways; 
Realizing not the impending slay. 
Shunning, running from the moral rays; 
Awake! 
O! Frivolous, fleeting, living clay!
