living with changes

i’ve lived half my life
listening to the tell-tale sound of the clock,
counting each stroke until midnight
embracing the countdown until zero

the day the clock stopped, my life stopped,
i was suspended in time
no way of knowing where i would be going
if the day had ended or the night had begun
i missed all my appointments that day
and my manager fired me from my job.

but, yesterday, i learned that perhaps my life could continue,
i found a new job at a happier place,
made a new friend with a lonely girl
listened to a new song on the radio that made me dance,
and i learned that, maybe,
i could live without the sound of the clock.
