Forest Eyes

Sometimes all you do is wait. Wait for winter to pass, wait for light to show, wait for what you are waiting for. And so you wait. What do you think of in your waits? What thoughts worry your mind? How does the time pass? Do you know the time when the time passes with you? Are you aware of it? 

You wait for the bus, for your next paychecks, for petrol to be cheaper. You wait for the acceptance into university or you wait for that dream job offer. You wait for school to be over, and then the end of the day at work. You wait for the weekends and the holidays.
You wait for your mind to catch up with your heart, or your heart to catch up with your mind. You wait through all those loves to finally find the one love that will keep you stolen forever.

Firstly you wait.

What happens in all those moments you are caught waiting? Waiting for things to happen, is life really passing us by? Do you miss out on core shaking moments because you are waiting?

Then you just want what you can't have.

You wait for summer then you wait for winter.. then you want summer again. You wait for your eighteenth birthday then you wait for your twenty first, then you want to be eighteen again. You wait to be married with children, then you want to be free. You want to be older when you are younger, then younger when you are older.

I don't want to wait anymore. Close your eyes. What do you see? Is there something you wish was different? Has the world changed? Have you changed it? Have you changed? Who have you become? Have you stayed the same? Who do you want to be?

You are not the product of your circumstances, you are a composite of all the things you believe, and all the places you believe you can go. Your past does not define you. You can step out of your history and create a new day of yourself. Even if the entire culture is saying, "you can't." Even if every single possible bad thing can happen to you does. You can keep going forward.

So stop waiting. Say yes and run, run to everything you want, everywhere you want to be with everyone you can go with. Look up and down and side to side. Don't miss anything along the way.
