Life shouldn’t be a journey. Live life like you are already at your destination.Let me tell you why this works.Human lives are generally defined by the goals that a human chooses to pursue.

The clock strikes one The only time you relish the sound of a baby crying With wondrous eyes and gentle hands the doctor holds her Reveling in this simple miracle Her mother tears turning from ones of pain to joy And her, just waking up The clock strikes two Dora was always her favorite doll to play with Until her daddy took it away Threw it at her mother Three years old isn’t too young to comprehend other’s pain The clock strikes t...
