Whatever happens, happens. If you waste your time clinging to the past, your whole life will revolve around a figment of days gone by.

The sky's in between day and night
as if it wants the best of both.
Pink hues and the white moon consume my vision.

I'd sit here, in peace forever
but life moves on.
It moves too fast.
There's not much water left in my glass.
It's emptying,
Some souls just aren't worth saving.

And I'm sitting here,
wasting precious time.
Watching the moon come up,
wasting light.

The author's comments:
Society is so fast-paced that sometimes some people can't keep up. Since we're all focused on time, we don't see the beauty that's right in front of us. It just fades into the scenery. That's what this is about.
