When the bell runggg!
for the final time this year
my heart sung with gusto!
eager for the hours that awaited me.
Eager for the
sun’s sticky sweat,
sea’s salty solution.
Eager for the summer to unearth
the beauty and freedom in life
that i forgot
But somehow in the midst of people and places
I seem to have lost all those seconds.
Time has become a liquid asset
my summer is made up of… a mass of plastic, fabric and stitching!
I can feel the guilt-y film of factory dust on my fingertips
fits of guilt, blowouts!
I crave for more moments!
Not memories, moments!
But every moment is a moment
and this is all song and dance.
We shan’t wait for next time
there is no next time.
There is only now
and now is all we need.
Dverse has got our brain juices flowing with a new prompt- time.
Time… this measure we’ve created was meant to aid our species, not to capture it and definitely not to pressure it. Yet somehow we seemed to have trapped ourselves within the bars of seconds, minutes and hours. How did seemingly empty digits take over our lives?
I guess the only way to be truly free from the chase is to (here come the cliches) live in the present. Live each second as it is. If we keep waiting for the right time or the right moment, then it’ll never come. Each second holds a treasure, and each second is unique because there will not be another like it. Test yourself: find beautiful things in your life that you might have not noticed before (e.g. the way the sun shines through your window in the morning).
