Ticking Bombs

There is a ticking sound

and it is the slow ticking

ticking away of our lives ;

each day is a ticking bomb

which we need to defuse ,

and having accomplished that

the very next bomb starts ticking ;

What life actually is ,

is not about dealing with

one bomb at a time ,

but rather

we are confronted by

and find ourselves

in the midst of ,

a whole room full

of ticking bombs ;

and theirs is the slow

ticking ,

ticking away..
