Time is a game

written by Sumandip Kaur-Silvia Cristofari

illustrated by Marina Araújo

Every day is an adventure,

a journey, a metamorphosis.

Live your life to the fullest,

don’t let it fade away.

Because time is just an illusion,

soon it will fly away,

leaving us with a sense of bitterness,

a sweet bitterness.

While we are walking it runs fast,

throwing us into the future,

and suddenly our present becomes the past.

Months seem like instants,

years seem like weeks.

Cruel, it has a swift hand,

the moments it steals will never come back.

First it gives,

then it takes.

It is our impetuous deliverer of pain.

Our sweet conveyer of happiness,

warming our hearts with beautiful memories.

Time is a game,

one we are fated to lose.
