Day after day
You start thinking about what you have done
You are exhausted
And you wonder when is it all going to stop
And just when you think you have finished that's when you realize it is a never ending path
That is when you realize you are doing everything in your power…
That is when you realize
You have been going on for so many years
And you become aware...
All this time...
You have been blind
You are so worn out your pieces start falling apart
That is when you stop for a moment
You stop to find an answer, and when you do not find any you just keep going on
Is eating you up
“You are educating yourself," they said
But are you really?
If by "educating yourself" they mean
Lots of homework
And tons of pressure?
They are right
You are educating yourself
You work like a machine that just get rustier and rustier
You are so worn out, that someday...
You stop for a moment
You open your eyes and you see things that you had never noticed
And you realize of all you have missed because you have been very busy
You are very busy surviving
But what about living?
You observe the world around you
And you are drowned by its beauty
You observe and you discover
You discover those little things that really matter
That life is beautiful
You discover that life is the only thing you really have
Life is everything you have
Because you would be dead if you did not have it
So what is the point of being alive if you are not living?
