Ten Minute Prompt – Be Prepared
BE PREPARED –
Time bears no sympathy for your life. It will pass by with merry ignorance of your comings and goings.
It will journey past you as you enjoy the happiest moments of your life and, equally, continue on its path while you endure your deepest heartaches.
Sure, you won’t always feel it pass as such. For the refugee crossing yet another horrid terrain, time will pass as treacle through a sieve. For the blushing bride, it will roar past like a freight train.
Time will see us through all of our ups and downs. It is one of the few constants in our being. Throughout; time has been our sentinel. Humans have understood and marked time for as long as they’ve been conscious.
Yet it is more of a cold, distant, indifferent guardian than a loving parent. It will bring you joys and take you away from them at equal pace.
When viewed holistically from beginning to end, time is aware of everything that has and ever will be.
But it will give you no warnings.
You have no idea when the shitstorm will ensue.
