Memento mori

So it's just like that hah?! very simple. You'll go to school, learn new stuff, go to the higher level of educashit and get older, once you realize you've got some needs under your underwear, look for bed partners, try different ones and pass it on, get older and go to univershitty, find yourself interested in "areas of intereshit" and get older, read books, pose off, try to be sophisticated, try to be smart, try to show your ass off, and get older. Get married, breed, work, breed some more, work more, and die. See, it's very simple, just takes a little bit of a try. And it's going on and on and on for so long, same way, same manner. The only difference is that somehow, sometimes, few people are smarter, some are stronger,... and some are different.
Here's a part of the great "TIME" I re-write on my birthday to keep reminding myself of the fact that nothing's everlasting and always "life is ours, we live it our way"...


Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death,
......

"Time" from Pink Floyd's 1973 album "The dark side of the moon"
