The Old and the New
New things come, and we give a great amount of attention to whatever is new. It’s a refresher to the eyes, the body, the mind, and the soul. Something that is new, that will eventually fade into the stream of time.
To think about it, most people cling to something so transient. I believe this is in itself is the reason for why they cling, because somewhere along the lines, they may just lose it. Without a hint of goodbye and a reminder to return.
Is that why they are so excited, every time something new comes into their life? But what about the other things they take for granted? Just because what was new has now become old, will be boxed and compartmentalized; to remain as remnants of the past, never to be opened again, and so moving on.
People confuse the things that are worth it and what is not. Just because something is new, doesn’t mean it deserves all the attention; not because something is old, doesn’t mean it deserves to be put aside. For the most part, it’s the old ones that remain, that goes to show who’s worth the company and who’s not. What is worth keeping and what is meant to let go.
