He had seen so many of them chilling out in the very same place.They were with people they love,their friends.their parents,their children.They used to just enjoy a nice evening.Just talking,relaxing and spending time with their near and dear ones.They were SPENDING time not saving it.How long had it been since he last saw someone spend time with someone they love here?Its seemed like eons had passed since then.”Has it been that long “, he wondered.Not by his standards.
What had come over these people?How did they forget the happy times they had when they spent time with people they loved? Dont they miss that?Is he the only one who misses those moments? Why have they fallen prey to this fast life? Why have they succumbed willingly to this monster which sucks out every living moment out of them? What does it leave them with? Money? “Yeah maybe” he thought.And what price did they pay for that.TIME.
Time with people who matter the most to them.He often wondered if people actually realised this.Because if they did he could not fathom why they would continue to live like this. .
He just wished he could turn back time.He yearned to have all his friends standing next to him All those years he had been happy,20 great years, very small age for his kind.All those years came back flooding to him as the axe was in his trunk.Yes, they had come to pull him down like they did to all his other friends.He guessed there was a highway coming.And he proved to be a discomfort.Or some other stupid reason.But he cared less.He wasn’t going to ramble on about how ungrateful humans were.He wasn’t going to try and remind them of all the wonderful times they had had picnicking beneath him and his other friends.He could still hear their laughter and merriment amidst the rustling of his leaves.He was happy ,happy that he had been a part of that life.A life where people were important,where time was a luxury. He wanted to be happy when he fell.
There he was watching them all .Racing against time.Always in a hurry.Always running.
Before he fell he just hoped that if he was reborn he would want to be in a world where people cared more about their loved ones and less about the invincible TIME.He hoped that they would realise that time will always be running out.He hoped that instead of trying to chase it, they just relished every little moment of it.Because then they become the masters of time.Because then when it actually does run out they don’t feel lost but feel as though they conquered it.He just hoped that when they fell they felt like him.No remorse.No regrets.Happy to have lived among good people ,great friends,people who loved being with them.He just hoped they felt like he felt now.
