Why does it take being the meanest at Christmas before you are haunted by three ghosts

I have no idea what I was doing here but I tried to do freewriting after consciously trying to empty my mind of all the things that were getting in the way and out it came before I realise what I was doing…

Why does it take being the meanest at Christmas before you are haunted by three ghosts

Why does it take a disaster at home before you understand the suffering of many others

Why does it take a complete destruction of your data before you think of backups

Why does it take reaching bankruptcy before you finally take money seriously

Why does it take a loss of life before you begin to appreciate the living

Why does it take a second to say hello and an eternity to say goodbye

Why does it take a lifetime of learning before you really understand

Why does it take a bursting of tears before you say your sorry

Why does it take so long for something you need to quickly

Why does it take a loss before you realise what you had

Why does it take a crisis before you think of prevention

Why does it take a cancer before you begin to see life

It takes so long and it takes so much to realise

But time grows shorter through the years

We are human and we make mistakes

We must learn to act not leave it late

We must learn to see and feel

We must think how we live

We must learn to live now

Because the time goes

The days fade away

And less is done

More has gone

Less change

Less hope

Unless

Now

You turn back the clock, open your eyes, feel for the world and empathise

You have it all now, this moment, this life, to experience and do it all,  realise
