Time doesn’t stop,
then, what’s the point in putting your dreams on hold?
because, time will run out on you eventually.
if you don’t live for yourself today,
are you sure that you can, tomorrow?
is there any guarantee there will even be a tomorrow laid out for you to live?
don’t let the dreams simmer inside you
let it boil and bubble up
let it bring you elation
you cannot pause the time, not even for a second
you can but try to freeze the time
by living this moment on your terms
time doesn’t stop for anyone or anything
but, I promise, if you live today to make your dreams come true
you will have cherished moments swirling inside you for years to come
all you need is to stop waiting and
start living your life on your terms
time doesn’t stop,
