What are you waiting for? Sitting in that chair, lying on that bed, sitting on that wall… What are you waiting for? Time is the most underappreciated element of all. Funnily enough… Time is the administrator of life. Every day you are given 24 hours. 1440 minutes. 86400 seconds… and that’s all. There is no patented way to stretch time. And every second wasted is a second lost. No double takes. No thinking twice.
To quote Linkin Park:
“All I know is time is a valuable thing, watch it fly by as the pendulum swings, watch it count down to the end of the day the clock ticks life away, it’s so unreal…”
And it is. Every second lost is time wasted that you could have used to get one step closer to your dream. in case you haven’t realized yet, we are the authors of the book we’re in. we are the writer, director, producer of this film… if you tell the character to lay on the bed and stare at the roof… that’s what they will do. That’s what you will do. It’s what you are doing. Epic films & great, memorable films are deemed so because the storyline gets to the point. But before that the hero has to find himself. Great heroes n great men realized at some stage that you have to get up and go get, take or liberate what you want. No one will give you your dream.
To quote bullet for my valentine:
“God has spoken through his conscience, as I scream aim n fire the death toll grows higher…”
So scream to psych your punk ass up. Aim at what you want, if you have nothing to aim at there is no point. Fire the weapon that is you at your targets n watch them shatter n spray as you hit your goals. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Rome was also not daydreamed into existence. Romulus n Remus had to overcome their issues, then find their way, then plan, then convince the very gods to help them build what was destined to be the centre of the civilized world. The result? A city of legend. A city that drew in great men n scholars. A city that literally conquered the world! Hell, we even count the days of our lives using the Roman calendar. Are you still seated…
To quote Bon Jovi:
“It’s my life! It’s now or never… I aint gonna live forever! I just want to live while I’m alive…”
The truth is friends, unlike Azazel the demon from Denzel Washington’s: fallen, time… isn’t on our side. No it aint… time, sleep n fate are all soldiers n cousins of death. Destiny is the sword that fate uses to cut the string of your life when time says so. At the behest of death. And sleep engulfs you so as to waste the precious seconds that time gives you. I
’ve decided to wrestle the sword from the hand of fate. My destiny is in my hands. So I ask again… what are you waiting for?
