Yes, I’m in a hurry.

Updated: Mar 11, 2019

I counted my years

and realized that I have

less time to live by,

than I have lived so far.


I feel like a child who won a

pack of candies: at first he ate

them with pleasure but when he

realized that there was little left,

he began to taste them intensely.


I have no time for endless meetings

where the statutes, rules, procedures

and internal regulations are discussed,

knowing that nothing will be done.


I no longer have the patience

to stand absurd people who,

despite their chronological age,

have not grown up.


My time is too short:

I want the essence,

my spirit is in a hurry.

I do not have much candy

in the package anymore.


I want to live next to humans,

very realistic people who know

how to laugh at their mistakes,

who are not inflated by their

own triumphs and who take

responsibility for their actions.

In this way, human dignity is defended

and we live in truth and honesty.


It is the essentials that make life useful.

I want to surround myself with people

who know how to touch the hearts of

those whom hard strokes of life have

learned to grow with sweet touches

of the soul.


Yes, I’m in a hurry.

I’m in a hurry to live with the intensity

that only maturity can give.

I do not intend to waste any of the

remaining desserts.


I am sure they will be exquisite,

much more than those eaten so far.

My goal is to reach the end satisfied

and at peace with my loved ones

and my conscience.


We have two lives and the

second begins when

you realize you

only have

one.
