The timer is slowly ticking away as I move through life with little to no regret.

For so many things I’m responsible for that the simple things have to be put on hold.

My body is always on alert mode and there is no time to truly just sit down and relax for there is always a timer ready to go off.

Telling me time is up and I have to keep moving and do more and more until I’m too tired to move or think.

I can’t relax not even for a moment for something might go wrong or get behind.

And I have to stay ahead of the mess not behind it.

I don’t know if I will run out of time but all I can do is do my best and move forward, hoping the timer won’t run out before I reach my goals in this life.
