But For That

But For That

I have, in a somewhat egotistical way, described this as my version of an eternal truth!

 

Time goes on forever.
When we are young, we can keep up with it.
When we are middle-aged, it slips ahead with subtlety.
When we are getting old, we slow down, time speeds up.
But …
Time goes on for ever.

Each moment is precious.
When we are young, we do not understand their value.
When we are middle-aged, we mistake their importance.
When we are getting old, each one is grabbed as if to keep.
For …
Each moment is precious.

There are not enough hours.
When we are young, the time ahead is never ending.
When we are middle-aged, we close our eyes and look the other way.
When we are getting old, we cannot evade the truth…
that …
There are not enough hours.

  1. Ohhh so savage I would say. It was real hard Allen, hit directly in the heart. The way you have described different phases of life and view to time is so fantastic and so true. I have to say the content on parapraxis is the best literature content found on any website, I mean your writing gs are so deep and meaningful that no one can imagine to write. Best wishes, keep going on.
