Henry's

Life is a card game. Draw your card. Hope for the best. You cannot choose
your card but you can figure out how to best use it. And yet it is not
until the end of the game when you lose, that you look back and see what
you could have done. Hindsight. Mankind must question everything that
happens to it. What is this? What was that? What will be coming? Perhaps
if we stopped questioning and just trusted we could do more with what we
have. But it will never happen. We care too much about our own selfish
lives. Foolish morals. You are one of billions on a miniscule planet. Our
lives mean nothing. And it isn’t until you have mere seconds to live that
you realize it.

Look at your watch. Listen. Can you hear it? Watch the seconds tick by.
Tick tock. Tick tock. Every second that passes is one more second you’re
alive. Tick tock. Tick Tock. And one more second closer your inevitable
death. Tick Tock. Tick Tock.

Do you believe in death? I don’t. Your presence changes those around you.
And that slight difference can change the way they change the ones around
them. A girl watches her brother perform. A man tells his niece a joke. A
good natured boy plots for world domination. And somewhere in the US, a
train crashes. Will you make a difference? Will I? So draw your card. Good
luck.
