What if life was played in fast forward? Would you look more, out the window? See the buildings, the missing trees? The colors changed, painted in steel? Focus on folds, beneath your cheeks? Spend time with the once, called lonely?
What if life was played in reverse? Would you redo things, differently? Experience reality? Change your lack of identity? Free your mind of not feeling free? Rethink responsibilities?
What if life was paused? Would you be doing, what you are doing right now? What is the first thing that comes to mind? What about the colors on your brush? Do you think that they are enough? Are you still on the right track?
What if life had to be lonely? Would you use your voice to speak? Is there a reason to listen? What rules would you want to create? Would you understand heartbreak? Would you bother to hit replay?
Either way we all reach the end. But we write separate screenplays. Decide our fate and how we blend. And how we fast forward our days.
Hopefully we are not the same. Get to use our voice and listen. To lose ourselves would be a shame. Or to move forward, not driven.
Remember, your life is in play. And should not be thrown away.
