We compete with time,
To postpone its inevitable consumption of our being.
What if, instead we leverage on our ability
To touch lives and create shared experiences?
And through this process which might be time-consuming,
We will be a part of someone’s stories.
Stories that will be told,
Far beyond time’s inevitable consumption of our being.
Then we won’t have to compete with time alone,
And what will become inevitable is not necessarily,
Its consumption of us,
But the stories told and retold that will postpone it.
