    Ben Harper - Walk Away lyrics Oh no- here comes that sun again.  That means another day without you my friend. And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself. And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else. And it's so hard to do and so easy to say...

    Good things come, then they're destroyed.

    Time passes and you're stuck with the "what use to be" going on in your head. The "now" just sucks. But, there's nothing you can do besides continuing on faking away. Until you've had enough and just can't anymore.

    Does the passing of time ever float around in

    your mind? I like Thanksgiving but family events freak me out. People come together year after year and each time, they change, things are different. The timer is ticking and that timer is years til your death. Quite honestly, I was frozen at one point. I didn't know what to...

    Seasons Change and So Do I

    It seems like only yesterday that I was just a child wide-eyed with wonder. Then quickly came the chaotic and yet wondrous teen years. Twenties came and went along with my thirties...and come spring I will be 50. So many changes and challenges throughout the years, turning me...

    Slipping Away

    I never really noticed how fast it goes by.I am nowhere near where I thought I would be by now.Time is spent and gone. I am unable to retrieve it.I am here today and that is how I live.No more looking back; it only reminds me.Time is not on my side.

    Growing Older

    Life has felt differently lately. I am sensing the impermanence of it all. Nothing lasts forever, it’s the nature of life. We are born, we grow old, and we die. It’s the way of life.  I am watching my children grow and I am saddened. I wish I...

    Let Time Pass, Just Not Without You.

    This second was now just seconds ago, and I will never get that second back. It is a sick thing to think about. One of those things I cannot understand, and if I try, the seconds will run out before I get to a conclusion. We shouldn't sit around wasting our time, because our time...

    My Story. Ever since I was a kid I was always

    told that I have an old soul. I was never interested in things that kids my age were obsessed with. I've always had a sense of growing up and getting older that I couldn't explain. When I was 8 years old, I had that moment of knowing that my parents would eventually grow older...
