...Chest tightens, breath stops, anxiety and panic grip... could it really be? Am I already there? I can't say it, I don't want others to notice it. Is this really happening? Life carries on, pushing,leaving no thought for reality... until the dawn breaks and there's no way of preventing what is already taking place. Laughter, tears, denial, neglect nothing can can stop the hands of time from moving forward. Twenty-Six here am I--no more hiding, no more tears, no more sorrows for life unlived. Time to embrace, look to the future, focus on what will be instead of what could have been. There's so much to be grateful for, so much to accomplish--thrust off the shackles, it's time. Dive in no holding back, forward into action...forward into life. I'm gonna live it and live it WELL. And just when I think I've given all... I'm gonna give just a little bit more.
