What You Have

Life
can seem so brief;
days rush by quickly, and nights
are never long enough.
It is not
the never-ending time we were
once led to believe it to be, and
the longer we live it,
the shorter it seems.
Life is
as much about perception,
as it is direction.
You are only allowed
so much time, and can only fit
enough life into your days
and nights.
Don’t look for the meaning,
but make it meaningful.
Life is not
what you had,
but what you have.
