Ignore the smoke and smile. A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be. What are you really waiting for? why not take a chance? stop being afraid, stop hiding. you think you have time, but you'll never now. it could be gone tommorow you could be dying today.
