Went right by your face but you spaced. Down the road it goes. What did you see? Did you learn, no, that's not what you yearned for. The lesson now, will come later leaving a burn. Keeping your eyes open cures the sweeping motion that life can bare on one not ready. Paying attention can ease the tension of going through life. Don't just stay alive. Pay attention and thrive.
"It’s not what you look at, but what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau
