The Clock is ticking and the darkness is rising. We are running out of time and our light is burning out. Take a breath; breathe in the air and savior this moment because it could be our last. We’re not getting any younger as time continues to move forward. It seems that life has become all about work, money and precious gold and silver that comes and goes.

I always thought people were precious gold and silver. Perhaps I’ve been mistaken, or perhaps a human being has what people fail to see. On the outside, it would appear that a person is not gold or silver. Branding someone as such would say they have value, and I’ve seen people treated like they have no value. I am still convinced that an individual is that of precious gold and silver, because I know they possess something worth more than all the money in the world. It’s what the darkness comes to consume. The darkness makes every attempt to steal, kill and destroy the one thing that has the most value in life… The heart… It is the very essence of our beings and what makes us who we are. The heart could become cold, dark and corrupt, or it could become good with the light therein.

Tic tock, the clock is ticking and the darkness has risen. Now is the time to cherish what matters more than life itself, each other forevermore.

  1. This piece reflects the daily thoughts that I have. I try to find ways to break free from the cycle that we’re thrust into, but it is not as easy as we may think. I can only hope that people become more and more aware of the vanity of “silver and gold”, aka social status based on products.
