Two lives

by Michelle Fortes

MY SOUL HAS A HATI counted my years& realized that I haveLess time to live by,Than I have lived so far.
I feel like a child who won a pack of candies: at first he ate them with pleasureBut when he realized that there was little left, he began to taste them intensely.
I have no time for endless meetingswhere the statutes, rules, procedures & internal regulations are discussed,knowing that nothing will be done.
I no longer have the patienceTo stand absurd people who,despite their chronological age,have not grown up.
My time is too short:I want the essence,my spirit is in a hurry.I do not have much candyIn the package anymore.
I want to live next to humans,very realistic people who knowHow to laugh at their mistakes,Who are not inflated by their own triumphs & who take responsibility for their actions.In this way, human dignity is defendedand we live in truth and honesty.
It is the essentials that make life useful.I want to surround myself with peoplewho know how to touch the hearts of those whom hard strokes of lifehave learned to grow with sweet touches of the soul.
Yes, I’m in a hurry.I’m in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.I do not intend to waste any of the remaining desserts.
I am sure they will be exquisite,much more than those eaten so far.My goal is to reach the end satisfiedand at peace with my loved ones and my conscience.
We have two lives& the second begins when you realize you only have one.
