If you had paid a little more attention then you would have known that the world had changed in front of your eyes.
You would’ve seen the new cars driving down the roads and you would have marveled at the sight of these machines that only the wealthy few could afford.
If only you would have opened your eyes you wouldn’t have missed it all.
You would have seen all the things the rest of us did.
And you would have had stories to tell your children.
But you did none of these things.
You were so lost in the bottle that you missed all of it. You missed how the world changed from slow to fast.
You missed it all.
Only because you thought the bottle was worth more than all the beautiful things in the world.
