A Quarter of a Century….

A quarter of a century…

25 years…

25 years in counting…

Counting the days…Counting the hours….Counting the missed opportunities

Counting yourself out…

Counting yourself old…

Counting that in a century…

You’ll be worth…

Worth the fifty cents you’ve spent..

Spent on striving..

Spent on pushing..

Pushing yourself to the limit…

Pushing your mind to the max…

Pushing your soul to take one more..

One more denial..

One more beat down..let down…

One more stress…

Stress the money…

Stress the job…

Stress the love…

One more day…added on…to your utter frustration..

Your dying drive…

Your faltering talent…

For what?

25 years…

A quarter of a century…

Wasted..

Uneventful…

And passing without remembrance…

Another 25 awaiting..

In the shadows..

Following your every move…

Sensing your every breathe..

Waiting for the clock to tick October 24th..

One more year added…

What will I do to make a difference?

Before…

A Quarter of a Century…
