Every Second Counts

Posted: January 29, 2013 by vjbc21 in VivanC

Lines of a poem only show so much.

They don’t show all of the feelings that you hide in the hollow chambers of your heart.

Only when you say these lines,

does it becomes real.

Although, what is real?

Have you ever thought about change?

Change happens every minute of every day.

Every second is a second you lose to death.

This life slips like sand through an hour glass.

Time will run out on each one of us.

Have you thought about things you should have said?

Or even things that your wish you could take back?

The things you can fix, become the things you can’t fix.

When you lose someone you love,

you think about everything you ever done wrong.

You don’t want to live your life full of regrets.

Always tell them you love them,

Whoever you were thinking about during reading this.

Because that is what is real to you.

You never know how much time you have,

and every second counts.

    I really love the first line of this. The lines of a poem do only show so much, but they do help out some when it comes to our heart. Very truthful.

    I like the line ” Change happens every minute everyday”. I like this poem; I think it has a beautiful message. We should live our life to the fullest and have no regrets, because we never know when our time is up. This poem conveys a lot of emotions, and it made me reflect on the person I’ve become. It is beautiful.
