In one such moment (when i was pretending to be not having the time) I came across a poem by a young 13 year old named Todd.....(Read it online). Time suddenly seemed to make a lot of sense....
Here's the poem..
It flies by us, when we're having fun.
It makes the moon rise, and lowers the radiant sun.
It wrinkles a young face, with old age.
It breaks a teenager's bond's, from the motherly cage.
It beats a mountain, until it falls.
It births a child, whenever life calls.
It changes the verses, while you're reading this rhyme.
How this all happens, you will know, with time.
Thanks Todd...(whoever you are!!!) The thing is.... Time never seizes to amaze. One look at the clock and you realize how fast it slips by. I sat looking at the clock for a minute and suddenly realized that I had lost a minute of my life.....!! "O my god.. Time's slipping me by...".
But then you do realize its not about seizing the moment but about living them.. living them the way you want to live. A moth lives for a night but it lives to the fullest....trying to reach out to the love of its life...the light! The butterfly counts not months but moments....and still has enough time to live for what it loves..the nectar! The birds fly in free sky to wherever they wish, the fish swim through waters and leap out in glee..... all of them do what they really love to do!
Why do we as humans always try to fight time? Why do we always end up thinking that we don't have enough of it...? Why do we tend to hold it so precious that we forget to live in it....? .And yet we keep loosing it!!
The Hungarian Horntail did say..."It's a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up."
Whats the money you've earned worth if you don't have the time to spend it with the people you love? The money will buy u a house, but the time will buy you happiness.. Its what you choose to do that matters!
A friend was unwell of late and was in the hospital (get well soon!) and I could not make time to go visit.. Yeah, now you know why I got into this tizzy of thinking about time ! Here's what I am promising myself.... I'm gonna live by the moment and not my the calendar. I'm gonna rule my time and not let it rule me....
Living the moment...the TIME's just about right to stop this blabber ant hit the sack ;)! Till the next time...Now's not forever!
