I once heard an old man saying that life is too short.
Talking mild, I had no idea what he was talking about because
I was a child living life, easy as easy snap, with no deep thoughts
Or bland until he said, “My child, you are still young to understand,
You need to be in my age for you to understand what I say.”
That’s when he made my mind feel gloomy the whole day.
Trying to imagine myself in his position and age, also kicking the story
Only to find out what he meant to when he said, “Life is too short.”
And now that he’s gone, I see life in a different way.
Also, now I know that a clock that ticks shorten a man’s life.
