Too Much

There’s just
Too much to learn
Too much to study
Too much to read
Too much to know

Too much to think
Too much to see
Too much to do
Too much to write

Too much to feel
Too much to accomplish
Too much to change
Too much to fix

Such little time
So much frustration
I’ll never finish it all
Because it’ll never end

The hour I just spent watching TV
Was such a waste of time.

That's the thing with life. It's all abut perspective. That one hour wasn't really a waste. It's a crucial part of life.

Time you enjoyed wasting was never wasted. Kissi genius ne kaha hai. That's how I comfort myself anyway.

Lovely piece btw.

And why haven't you posted anything in almost three months? We miss you.

@Anon and Vaish: It's not really a waste in terms of enjoyment, but a big waste in terms of the big picture. When there's so much to do, watching TV really shouldn't come even close to the top of the list.

@Unmana: Thanks for reading! I've mostly just been lazy, but am trying to get back to writing more regularly.

Exactly. Atleast for a student with loads of pending work, assignments & class tests.
