Time is a construct,
but it is also finite.
The same voice
saying, “go, go go,”
says, “enjoy the moment.”

It is easy to get caught
in the riptide of time
stuck in the undertow
paddling to not fall behind.

Humbled by impermanence,
frozen by loss,
grateful for conscious presence.

Better get to living
before you get too old.
The lining is silver,
and the timing is gold.

Kailani NorwellKailani Norwell has a big mouth, a big heart, a big brain (metaphorically speaking), a big fucking ego, and an even bigger take on everything and anything. She has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge–to learn all that she can–and for personal development. While she dreams larger than life and encourages others to follow what puts sparks in their eyes, she typically plays incredibly small. She has indebted herself for America’s most expensive therapist–a bachelor’s and master’s degree in clinical psychology. Writing is her passion. It’s what ignites her soul. It is her most sincere form of expression. She doesn’t think she’s to write the next great American novel, but she’s to write something.
