We live fast
But we learn slow, and
We have catalysts to things that
We would rather cherish, like
First kisses and
First loves.

Maybe breathing in slow
Keeps us alive
For a lot shorter than we think.
We always say
Living is the longest thing we will do
And yet
So many live fast
And die young, like
Sixteen year olds with
Broken goals and
Discarded dreams.

Keep each moment in time like
Pearls you would dive for
In the abyss of eternity.
One day you will lose them.
One day,
You will want them.
