The Calling

The Calling

By Jacob Vinson

To the boundaries of sky

Past the glimmer in our eyes

Lies a synapse of heart and mind

Brace yourself for the slide

5 Across the planets

Beyond the stars

Where fire dances with ice

In the dark unknown of space

Look back to our home

10 An elliptical image of our world

A tiny speck in a floating void

Impearled with a celestial flurry

* Aeria Gloris, Heavenly Glory

Never will I look away

15 Spirits rising and falling

Calling, Calling,

In the depths of longing

Yearning ensues and enthralls

For what life has left me

20 Backtrack through the heavens

Running to fight the shadow of a lie

I’m both the defendant and the arbitrator

Never again will I leave behind

The chasms beneath the moon

25 Filled with singing souls

Calling, Calling,

In the depths of longing

Time is Fleeting

Time is quite possibly the most powerful thing in the universe. “Tick, Tock…” Time is running out and you need to find the best way to utilize what time you have left, because you never know when it’s going to be over for you. Sure, the watch on your wrist will keep ticking, but will your heart? When everything else seems motionless, time is always looming in the background.

Though it sounds scary, you shouldn’t fear. Be happy that there is still time for you – time to make things right – time to make peace with the world and yourself. Depression is known to slow down the thinking process, so if you are dwelling on something that is depressing, you’re only wasting your time. Studies show that racing through happy thoughts makes you more productive and ultimately happier. I know it is not easy to just throw what depresses you aside, but you can control some of your thoughts.

Instead of hanging onto a breakup or a gone loved-one, pan through your future plans and goals. Regardless of what has happened, you can still control what happens in your future. Time can’t stop you and you can’t stop time, they both end at the same time, and you don’t know when that’s going to be. Whether it is the Ragnarok, Tribulation, Armageddon, or whatever you believe it’s going to be, there is still time for you to achieve greatness. Don’t throw your ideas and goals aside just to later be sitting on the front-porch-swing looking back on your life and wishing you could change it.

Now is the time for you to make the pivotal choices that shape your future. Don’t procrastinate, and do not rely on anyone else to do it for you. If you can read this, then that means that you’re still alive, and there is still time for you.

As I said, you can’t control time as a whole, but you can control your future.


“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”

-Carl Sandburg
