An Open Letter to Time

Dear TIme,

When I think about where I am going, I get both a little excited and a little scared. Some days are better than others because good things happen. Some days bad things happen and it gets me thinking about where I'll be tomorrow, in a year, and in ten years. I wonder what the universe has in store, while hoping for the best. We all have dreams and big plans for our lives. We dream of the career, the marriage, the partnership, the kids, the house, the big city and more. Many times the universe's and God's plans are otherwise and you don't get everything you ever wanted. Thank you time for making me realize that I'll always be exactly where I am supposed to be in that moment. It might not be pretty or exactly what I want, but it's exactly what I need at that moment in time.

I always wondered if you really heal all wounds. They always said time heals all wounds, but I'm not sure it does. I still think about people that are not here anymore and wonder where they are and how they're doing. I still wonder how my life would've turned out if things had been different. Then I come to remember that everything happens for a reason, even if I still have not uncovered the reason. So Time, I wonder how much longer it will take you to help us all heal?

Some of the best plans we make get ruined or cut short. That's what it means to be human and not have control over everything that happens. Time goes on, as does life, without stopping or pausing for us to have a break. The sun will always rise in the morning, prompting us to follow your pattern and get back up and do it all over again. Time, will you ever slow down? Will you ever warn me that everything is about to change? I know you won't, but it's nice to think I'll get through it with your help and by rising stronger every day.

Some days I can't even believe how much time has passed. I wonder where it has gone and I cannot believe how 'adult' I'm getting, even though I still feel like a twelve year old. It's a real paradox feeling like a twelve year old, but wanting to be twenty-five at the same time. So time, I wish you and I the best of luck and I hope you bring me joys bigger than sorrows in the years to come.


A fellow human
