Time does not wait for anyone. This the boy had learned. He had tried to buy it from someone sometimes but never had he earned. Time is a precious gift for those who know how to use it well. Some throw it away though, and only have time to dwell. The boy had always been careful with time, but sadly he hadn't enough. It was not as if he'd committed a crime. But life was really tough. He whined the clock in his hand, and quickly he started to shiver. He found it hard to stand, and threw the clock in the river. There it lies in the deep, and never will it swirl. The boy will never weep. He's got all the time in the world.
