The world will not wait

by CJ Maleney   Apr 27, 2017


Stop your dreaming you have no time to dream.
Discard your fantasies.
Wash away your fears.
The world will not wait for you.

It will still spin and turn,
It does not care about your plight,
It does not care about your problems,
The world will not wait for you.

You can plan your life to perfection,
But the world will not wait.
It has centrifugal force
Your plans will be spun into the darkness.

The world will not wait.
You can't wait for it either,
It will give you nothing, this is the way of things.
However the world is yours to take,
But you have to jump on.

Nothing is guaranteed,
Nothing is granted,
Nothing is given
You have to take it or forget you wanted it.

The world will continue with or without you.
It will still spin,
It will still turn,
People will love, loose and die.

Your existence is but but the breeze created by the beat of a wing lost in the wind.
But Sometimes the slightest breeze is a breath of fresh air.

So the world will turn and it will forget you as sure as it forgets yesterdays storm.
It will forget the pain, it will absorb the suns rays.

Eventually it will absorb you.

All this said,
For whatever reason someone will remember you.

Either for good or bad, you will be remembered by someone.
Make sure it's for the right reasons.

    Craig, so very true. Life travels at the speed of light and as you get older it gets even faster. Make it count, stop being with and around people that don't have your best interest in. Do something you are passionate about and makes your soul happy. Well done-
