3…2…1…Self-Destruct (Louis Toliver Jr)


3…2…1…
Who’s clock am I living by?

It must be man’s because my spirit transcends time
I must be careful not to put my faith in time
If I spend my life racing against time then it is likely I will self-destruct
Time is not my enemy but my friend
It is to only here to remind me how important it is to be living

I shall resist those things that leave time used or filled
Instead I will embrace those things that expand time
3…2…1…the countdown of the clock is just my imagination
Only GOD knows what time is and what it shall be
I must not let time turn me into my own enemy

Time is not life.
Life is the then, now, and tomorrow.

I am living life, not time.
I will not self-destruct.

When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
