Running quickly,
Striving for success
To cure a restless mind
Thoughts can’t catch up or align with my actions

Exasperated as the end is near
I realize there’s nothing there,
only a quick race through what was meant to be called “life”
Chasing it with all your energy without knowing what it is you’re intensely running after,
Somehow you lose a sense purpose

Never stop! Persist!

Yet, to what end?
To the point where life ends before it even had a chance to begin.

We begin to die prematurely before we even suspect it
Our breath slows down,
Our legs weaken,
We slowly lose sight of our path

Suddenly,
We’ve stopped, without realizing it and we’re just panting for air
But we’re lying on the floor.

Defeated,
Fooled into thinking we’re still running in the race against all the odds of time.
We try to trick time into thinking we’re rapidly advancing,
Yet, it is us who are the fools
Because we can’t win against what’s already been predestined for us,
Death.

Oh, if only they told me that the sweetness was in the run and not in the end

I saw them all lying there breathless,
the fire within them extinguished,
it was over but they didn’t find the quench for their thirst in the end

"The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately."
- Seneca
