Time doesn't wait for u
nor for me..
Days pass and years go by..
we miss our loved ones.
we move away from our close ones.

As our life changes so do our dreams and priorities. Friends change ..people and places do get changed.But those red and blue moments are still twinkling in our hearts .Making us happy in sad times ..and sometimes sad in happy times.As we all know that the wheel of life is tied with so many strings from friends to family..from child games to school hours from college days to work hours and as of a trend of this modern world yours girlfriend silly long talks and frequent fights...Personal space is somewhere a bit lost isn't it?

I find my hours and days too short too explore the world and discover its short to seize my golden moments with my close short to walk and touch the glittering dreams of my life.

I am not so grown up and nor so wise enough but yet can watch and hear the TIME marching in its own rhythm. My MOTHER NATURE losing its greenery day by day and the empty spaces filling up with black and white cattle .The world loosing its glory and each day crime coming up with a new story..Bonds and emotion in all hearts and soul have gone dried fetching for just love and trust to quench their thirst .Words have turn into swords and people ready to play with each other blood just for foolish ego and revenge have gone so wild and behaving like a silly child.

If i my whisper is loud enough and if i am able to touch all my readers wandering thoughts all i wanna say is that life is too short to be wasted on unworthy matters . Discover your own self and get yourself free from this tug of war of time..Don't get so much trapped in this materialistic noisy world that you are not even able to see the shadow of thou's walk of life..Wait ..Watch and Enjoy ..before the glass of time gets empty from your life.
