Consume the Hour

I fear for the ones who go through life to fast; for the ones who don’t take a second to breathe. You can’t keep rushing, pushing me further, all I want is enough time for myself. Reflect and overcome; there is no need to gallop through your day. There are not enough hours in the day to do everything; yet you still try. You tell people to go faster without realizing tomorrow always comes. Don’t blindly go through life; just to dig yourself a grave. Open your eyes, and be aware of what you are doing before you do it. The only species known to have a concept of time are humans; however, they also don’t have jobs, or people to see. If you take a step back and take a breath, you see life gets a lot better. Don’t let the concept of being somewhere without wasting a second consume you. Control when, and why you go somewhere. Do not go against your will, go with purpose, with ambitions. When you have your eyes closed you miss out on life. While you are rushing me, someone else holding the hour close, enjoying themselves. Take a leap from being unaware to knowing. Know that you don’t need to make your life fast-paced; that you can slow down. I used to rush around like a chicken with my head cut off, but now I know different. Rushing never got me anywhere if anything, I was stressing. Stressing that I would never be able to finish anything I was doing. At one time it consumed me I was not able to look past the fact that I wasn’t living life to its fullest. That I was in a constant state of overwhelming anxiety, and depression. It wasn’t untill I took a step back, and looked at where I was, and what path I was really taking. Of course I knew I wasn’t making anything better by racing through my days and, paying attention to the passing of the second hand. So I slowed down, and embraced the clock rather than fighting in. I took the initiative, and made my own mark on the day. I don’t let the clock run down; or live my life for me.
