Tick-tock, steady beat,

Measuring life's fleeting pace,

Time waits for no one.



Measuring Life's Fleeting Pace, Time Waits for No One

Explanation: This title suggests that life is constantly measured by the passage of time, which does not slow down or wait for anyone. The clock's ticking represents the perfect symbol of this steady beat, marking the passing seconds, minutes, and hours without ceasing. The underlying idea is that we must be mindful of our time and use it efficiently, as our lives are limited and fleeting. Suggests a tension between the precise measurement of time and the ephemeral nature of life, which is expressed through the association between the steady ticking of a clock and the rapid passage of time.
