Eternity is a strong word. While we can wish for it to happen, nothing stays the same.
Every thing that I know existed, needs to take the test of time.
Many of our youth are wasted chasing around useless things, may be even worthless things.
By the time we realise it, time has past and gone.
What is left is us, trapped in the past and refusal to walk out of it.
Some day we will find ways to free ourselves from the trap.
Eventually, for eternity.
