"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius

we bleed slowly
breath softly
beat gently
be still,
we grow quickly
learn quickly
lose quickly
move fast,
they’ll cut at first
then tear cruelly
bite hungrily
resist them,
we bleed slowly
breath softly
beat gently
be still.

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
—Apple’s “Think Different” commercial, 1997
“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou

Relationships can be like this. We want them to develop and mature too quickly that we don't realize that harm we're actually doing to each other. Rather than enjoying the now, we're so caught up with what can happen. Great poem to capture that.
