Old Man With Walking Stick
I always remember these lines: "life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend". The time will come when we will grow old enough to look back and think of the things we did right or wrong or simply didn't do. Then we will regret many things, that's for sure and we will feel nostalgic about our past and the people we left behind and weren't lucky enough. Do you know how long will it take to get there?, just a snap of your fingers. Or some milliseconds compared to the history of mankind. Do you know how many people have faced the same experience, when you get to the end of the line? Many of them are there in our books of history, in our collective mind, just an image in our database, many more not even deserved to be stored. They were here and were like you and me and they felt the same and looked into their past just as we do now and their visit to this land was brief too. How much time did they or will we spend fussing and fighting before it's too late?
