Don't Fall Behind

Didn't you realize?

If you're not growing, then you're falling.
And if descent is really what you want, then make sure to put your whole self into it.
Otherwise its a waste.
A waste of life and purpose.
An insult to the child that is struggling to take it's first steps.
Because, It's nice that you've overcome what I'm just beginning

But what of it now, if it's not going anywhere?

And please tell me, why is it always the children,
the innocent, the new - that are the keys to our emotion and self-pity toward one another.

This all spilled into my mind at the park.
As one man sits, strokes his long beard with one hand and reaches for his daughter with the other.
Then take notice of other children zooming past on their bikes.
To the left, a group of college girls are giggling while drinking ice coffee.
And found on the right in the corner is an old man on a bench slumped over, next to his backpack.

Or maybe growth is really sort of inevitable.
But when you're aware of its importance
All the more better life is.

Don't forget to not regret

Very nice Sefirah :) I'm glad to see that Tzfat is finally getting to you... you start just thinking so above ay? isn't it great once it hits?

Yeah, It's a drug but with only positive side effects!

Yeah but the withdrawal is horrible.
