"Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." -- Dr. Seuss
|A picture of time flying. From an article on Edudemic.|
Silver streaks the sky of blue
Another year through and through
But alas this isn't the day it all ends
For this is where the real story begins
Reaching like a child unto the heavens
Make a wish upon a star as it glimmers
Rush forth through the air with upmost glee
And wander into the world in which your were three.
The longer it takes you to blow out that flickering candle
The longer you will live to cross those white sands in sandles
Appreciate all the graying hairs left on your head
For one day you most assuredly will be dead
And everything will move in reverse
As it goes in this universe
Memories all the same
Or so we'd wish
As time begins
Thought for the Reader: What will you do with the time you have?
