A measure of life We measure our lives in a myriad ways, at birth our life begins ticking away.

The seconds, minutes into hours. Dreams, hopes into aspirations. Hours become days, weeks into months. Milestones become achievements. Months stretch into years. Teeth, school and birthdays. Decades become half a century, achievements, replaced by regrets. Hopes by lost opportunities. Finally our time left on earth is again, measured, in months, days into hours. Love and wealth into legacy. In the final second all your experience. Dissolves down the universal drain, And a two line Obituary, in the Classifieds.
