“My time”

I knew my time had come to an end.

I knew there was nothing I could do.

And I had come to accept that.

Someone else was going to take my place.

Someone else was going to shoulder the weight of what I had spent my life doing.

Someone else was going have to finish what I had started.

I only hoped that someone was ready.

Ready for what was coming.

Ready for what he or she was going to have to do.

What they were going to have to sacrifice.

I hoped they where ready, but I knew they never would be.

None could understand the sacrifices they where going to have to make.

None could understand how hard it is to shoulder the weight of the world.

But I knew someone was going to take on my burden.

And I knew someone was going to succeed.

All I hoped was that they didn’t give up.

And that when their time was over, they had done enough.

Enough so someone else could carry on where they had left off.

Like they had done for me.
