You wanted fame, money, and power. In return, you overlooked family, fun, and love. You never let yourself rest, always moving with such haste. In the end, are you happy? You’re rich, but are you fulfilled? You have bare shelves in a big house, where are your fond memories and mementos?
Look at you now, you’re old and alone, staring at the clock. There is no one beside you to say goodbye. You had it and you wasted it; you had time. Now it’s time to close your eyes, with hopes we will do it differently in the next life.
