Its NOW not Forever!!!!!








I’ve been mulling writing for a long time but I always come up with an excuse of being too busy and not having the TIME….

In one such moment (when i was pretending to be not having the time) I came across a poem by a young 13 year old named Todd…..(Read it online). Time suddenly seemed to make a lot of sense….

Here’s the poem..

It flies by us, when we’re having fun.
It makes the moon rise, and lowers the radiant sun.
It wrinkles a young face, with old age.
It breaks a teenager’s bond’s, from the motherly cage.
It beats a mountain, until it falls.
It births a child, whenever life calls.
It changes the verses, while you’re reading this rhyme.
How this all happens, you will know, with time.

Thanks Todd…(whoever you are!!!) The thing is…. Time never seizes to amaze. One look at the clock and you realize how fast it slips by. I sat looking at the clock for a minute and suddenly realized that I had lost a minute of my life…..!! “O my god.. Time’s slipping me by…”.

But then you do realize its not about seizing the moment but about living them.. living them the way you want to live. A moth lives for a night but it lives to the fullest….trying to reach out to the love of its life…the light! The butterfly counts not months but moments….and still has enough time to live for what it loves..the nectar! The birds fly in free sky to wherever they wish, the fish swim through waters and leap out in glee….. all of them do what they really love to do!

Why do we as humans always try to fight time? Why do we always end up thinking that we don’t have enough of it…? Why do we tend to hold it so precious that we forget to live in it….? .And yet we keep loosing it!!

The Hungarian Horntail did say…”It’s a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up.”

Whats the money you’ve earned worth if you don’t have the time to spend it with the people you love? The money will buy u a house, but the time will buy you happiness.. Its what you choose to do that matters!

A friend was unwell of late and was in the hospital (get well soon!) and I could not make time to go visit.. Yeah, now you know why I got into this tizzy of thinking about time ! Here’s what I am promising myself…. I’m gonna live by the moment and not my the calendar. I’m gonna rule my time and not let it rule me….

Living the moment…the TIME’s just about right to stop this blabber ant hit the sack ;)! Till the next time…Now’s not forever!







About Arun Mishra

“We often becomes what we believes ourself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” SO, “If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be winners. Because "I feel like my wings are finally coming back. They were broken, and there was a point where I thought I was confined to this earth. But I feel like they're back now. And I'm excited to fly again. And sure, there are going to be bad and tough times. I can easily see them now but that's not a reason to stay on the ground. Everyone has to fall sometime but no matter how long it takes you, you eventually get tired of dragging your feet through the mud, and you get up and find your wings have healed and they ache to fly again. So I'll fly, I'll fall, I'll get back up, and I'll live."
