Suddenly faced with the rest of your life
The rest of your life. A daunting prospect.
As a child, it is an impossible daydream –
Too intangible to grasp, too distant to consider,
Especially with such fleeting consciousness.
Born aware more by idle mind than reality –
As events are planned and past, as hopes are raised and gone,
We become acutely attentive of the setting sun, the passing days.
The dawn of the rest of your life may appear more as a blinding midday sun,
Than sunlight creeping above the horizon.
Embrace it – for even a distant vision grows closer with each step.
