IM BREAKING UP/DOWN
i'm leaving it for good...
on the table, or in a box ...
i just don't want to see it anymore.
will i miss it.. God no!
will i feel better .. I already am :)
so i have decided to stop wearing "watches"
.. or .. to put it better..
i have decided to stop watching, watches!
why did i waste my years watching a watch.
is it really the case?
do we watch the watch tick-tickity-tock-tocking.....
or does it watch all of us, t....i....c....k....i....n....g!
thin lines that define every minute that passes by.
a watch is watching us, judging us, measuring our days.
telling us we've wasted 5 minutes of doing nothing!
a few minutes more. its suffocating!
tick tock ..
do we need something, or someone,
that's always staring at us the whole time.
checking if were on time or not, if were late or not,
if we're doing something or not?
a watch is a someone to me,
it has a harsh language--a threatening tone.
we learn to check out time every five minutes?
it is our day! we spend it the way we want.
why worry about what time is it?
why limit ourselves with ticking!?
does a day really have 24 hours only?
or is it what we've learned since we were little?
the world is turning into a race track, growing faster and smaller.
a day ends before u know it.
so it doesn't feel like the watch is telling the truth.
do we need it?
other than appointments, and meetings and things that are timed.
do we need a watch?
when you're simply walking spending a day doing whatever it is your doing.
do you need to wear a watch on your wrist, and check it every minute?
i thought i did, now i know better.
i stopped wearing it now for over a month!
at first it was difficult didn't feel normal,
but my hand felt light and free :)
i felt nervous .. sometimes... i just needed to know the time.
but then i figured things around me can tell me the time.
things like the sun, like when people start punching their cards, when my friends call me ... etc.
life is much easier now, I'm enjoying it.
i may not be making any sense to some of you, but believe me, it is simply liberating!
hope my post wasn't a waste of ur time ;p
so all i can say is give it a try, for one day ..... !
ta taah :*
