Lost in Time

An Existential Journey with a Slow-Moving Clock

By TVN-Triệu NinhPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

The Puzzling Moment of Stillness

As you gaze at the clock on your wrist, time seems to defy its usual pace. The seconds tick by at an agonizingly slow speed, leaving you in a state of perplexity.

How can it be that only a moment ago it was 5 o'clock, and now suddenly, it's 7 o'clock? The baffling nature of time's elasticity is a riddle that captivates us all.

The Unpredictable Nature of Time

Time, like a capricious muse, plays tricks on our perception.

It ebbs and flows, sometimes quick like a raging river, and other times languid like a tranquil pond.

In the serenity of sleep, time slips away unnoticed, only to jolt us awake into a reality where hours have vanished in the blink of an eye.

Contemplating the Illusion of Hours

As we navigate the enigmatic realm of time, we are forced to confront the illusion of hours slipping through our fingers like grains of sand.

The slow-moving clock serves as a poignant reminder of the fleeting nature of existence, urging us to cherish each passing moment as if it were our last.

Embracing the Ambiguity of Time

In the face of time's relentless march, we find solace in embracing the ambiguity that surrounds us.

Like a shimmering mirage, time dances before our eyes, teasing us with its elusive grasp.

And yet, in the stillness of the moment, we discover a profound sense of peace in letting go of our need to control time's inexorable flow.

The Eternal Dance of Time and Perception

Just as the hands of the clock continue their eternal dance, so too do we waltz through the ever-shifting landscape of our perception.

Time, with its beguiling allure, beckons us to ponder the mysteries of our existence and revel in the beauty of the present moment.

Surrendering to the Enigma of Time

As we surrender to the enigma of time, we find ourselves liberated from the constraints of past and future, basking in the radiant glow of the here and now.

The slow-moving clock becomes not a harbinger of anxiety, but a gentle guide, leading us on a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment.

Embracing the Journey

So, let us embrace the journey with open hearts and curious minds, ready to unravel the secrets that time whispers in the silence of its ceaseless ticking.

For in the stillness of the moment, we find the true essence of our being, forever entwined with the eternal rhythm of the universe.

Quietly drifting

Look at the watch on your hand

See it running slowly

But after sleeping, I woke up

It's not 5 o'clock, it's 7 o'clock

The important thing is not whether it runs fast or slow

The important thing is that it flows quietly

So the result will be different anyway

If you are thinking of giving up, remember why you started

You've gone half way through a very long, very tiring journey

Don't let those two tiring words make you become a failure

Stand up, keep walking, if you're tired, take a rest

Lonely look

Only children demand answers

Adults will feel it themselves and leave

This world doesn't care about your feelings

They only care about your value

So you must remember not to damage broken things and cut yourself

Don't grasp what's flying and then lose it

When we blame ourselves, the person who suffers the most is still ourselves

Time will heal all wounds

Because you deserve your own happiness

What is youth?

Men don't have youth

A man's past is his youth

I don't know how much is too much

I don't know what is enough

Just keep doing it until you realize it and look back, you're no longer young
