Obscured by time

"And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death"
-'Time', Pink Floyd

The eternal race is still on. And the truth is we will never catch up with the sun.

These days I have an edgy feeling. I get paranoid whenever I look back. I keep asking myself, "Is this the place where I wanted to reach?"

Then one morning I see the sun rise. I see the world come alive. And I realize the insignificance of our personal existence. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't always look at life so philosophically. But at times the usual and mundane things of life throw up the little nuggets of truth. Looking at the rising sun helped me come to terms with myself that day.

And now I have decided not to care about what all I haved achieved or squandered.
