The clock is ticking
Aspirations of things to come
and places not yet seen.
An eagerness, a longing still
for wishes to be fulfilled
before too quickly
the time has passed
the clock ticks down
to the last

To be able to say
that we not only survived
but that we actually thrived.
Living life to its fullest,
not sitting on a couch
wishing it would come to pass,
hammering away
at our bucket list.

strategies of
places to travel;
so many adventures to be had --
so many adventures to be shared.
