Life Without Time

Updated on November 29, 2012

What Would Happen ?

In such a advanced society we can not go anywhere without seeing the time

Years ago it was the clock on the wall staring us in the face

A watch on our wrist to remind us when we were running late

Now more than ever we are overrun by those tiny little clocks

At home, in work,gym,at the grocery store,even in the bathroom

Cell phones,cell phones,cell phones

Someones is on a cell phone

They all have the time so easy see at an instant

Don't forget everywhere you look

In your car on the dash board,at home on the stove and on the microwave oven and the bedroom clock and on the t.v.

There are digital clocks to tell you if you don't know

When the power goes out I have to wait

Until the power comes back again then I go around the house resetting all the clocks

What if all our clocks stopped working at the same time

For some strange unknown reason

How would we get to work on time ?

When would we know when to leave ?

A total disaster right

But for once in our life we could to do anything we wanted without a schedule

Free at last

No more appointments when we get there we get there

Not in a rush

No more hitting the snooze alarm for ten more minutes

It would be fun just for a day

But everything comes with a price

All the buses, trains and plains couldn't run

No schedules no arrivals no depatures

We couldn't drive all our traffic lights are on timers

A world of work with no lunch breaks or overtime

Impossible to cook anything

How crazy would that be

There is so many things that we couldn't do

I am happy to see the time even though it is later than I thought

I feel safe that we have a system that works

As the time ticks by and we move on

May time serve you well because without it life would be a living hell

      Being conscious of time rather than taking a deep dip in work is not advisable, Time stops to tick when the work overpowers us..

      Deborah Brooks I was so surprised at how many times I actually look at a clock during the day.What for ? To wish my life away.I could see if I had an appointment and I had to be somewhere.But I was in work and had plenty of time or I was at home and I could just relax.Then I noticed I wasn't the only one.Try it for yourself.See how many times time comes to mind.Thanx so much for reading.

      Dim Flaxenwick It seems like more than ever we are reminded of the time .I am more conscious and and subconsciousy aware of the time.While on the computer the time is always ticking away in the bottom right hand corner in front of me.It is like having a stop watch running tick,tick ,tick,I try to expand time by thinking of all the good times I have had and enjoy all those memories with the good times I am having now.mary615 You are so right.When I am with friends or family and having a great time I stop and think and pretend to be bored so the good times will last longer.I often think how slow time must go for those in prision when they have nothing else to do.Thanx so much for picking apart time and streching it in ways that haven't been done before.

      Time is a funny thing: Like money, once it's spent, you can't get it back. Sometimes we wish we could get it back so we could use it in better ways. Another thing: if we are having a great time with someone, the times just flies by, but if we are bored with someone, the time drags on and on.

      Great Hub. I voted it UP, etc.

      So, So, clever, the way you worded this. You are right. The time is all over the place now.

      I love your idea of all clocks stopping....Who knows what would happen.?

      Gypsy Rose Lee I always wish I could buy time.No matter how long the wait I would be there waiting in line.Just trying to get back a little time that I lost because I didn't realize how important it was and now it is gone.Eiddwen I figure if we can't buy time then why not just enjoy every second we have while we can.Thanx so much and as always enjoy life because it is up to us to make the most out of what we have.
