The Clock is Ticking is an insight of the life of the author who is suffering with anxiety and other mental illnesses. Granted a new perception of the world after a rough break-up in his teen life, the author has outlived the ideology and beliefs of a teenager. Every new page of this book is a anxious thought inside the author’s mind. Strangled between letting go and moving on, the author shares his sorrows and opinions through his mystical words. The author includes his questions about the world through poetry and wonders if anyone has answers to it.
