“Slow down”

I think I’ve seen most of what the world has to offer.

I think I’ve done everything I can.

And now there’s nothing left for me to do.

Except sit in my room and wither away.

That’s what happens to people who’ve done everything.

We wither away.

Because there’s nothing left in this world for us.

Looking back I should have slowed down.

I should have enjoyed my time more.

Stayed in one place a little longer.

I shouldn’t have been so quick in leaving.

I should have loved more.

Maybe then I wouldn’t sit in my room and dream back to when I was younger.

Before I had seen everything.

Before I had done everything.

Life’s funny that way, we enjoy everything for a short time but if you don’t make time and slow down then you’ll find yourself sitting alone in a room thinking, dreaming, about all the things you’ve done.

And all the things you should have done differently.
