As I started to grew up, I see everything speeding up, people running fast. If you aren’t important you are left behind. I realized the social life I was dreaming of ain’t so important now. The attachements, the friendships are mostly just a illusions, people can leave you falling behind and go away with such a ease. I guess am still learning, you are only important till you do everything right. If you fall down once you are left behind alone and its only you that is missing, while others go far ahead in the race to their glory.
Early start doesn’t gurantee your success, you gotta keep running cause life never stops. Once you are distracted for a while, you end up missing out the thing called life. When you recover, you realize everything has changed, nobody is gonna beg for you, nobody is gonna wait for you. I came across this quote
“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running”
Yeah it doesn’t matter whether you are the strong one or weak one, you gotta keep moving. The person with whom you spend your life most of the time is ‘yourself’ so make yourself interesting. Dreams have always been part of my life, I made some mistakes, I fell down and chased things that were running away from me. I missed many things, and now when I look ahead nobody in sight, I feel special no more. Things always traps you, you gotta know how to escape.
You win some, you loose some but never back down chasing things. Cause its the human race and nobody is gonna stand up for you, its the survival of the fittest. You get weak, emotional be ready to be punished few miles behind.
A verse from three days grace that applies to our life
I’ll be there when you need me
You’ll be safe here
When you finally trust me
Finally believe in me
I will let you down
