..is when something diminishes as a result of not being used.
Your voice. From not speaking up.
Your agency. From not grasping opportunity.
Your heart. From indifference and apathy.
Your life. From not living it. But letting it slip by.
Perhaps worse than being dead
Is wasting away while still breathing.
He who observes the wind will not sow,
And he who regards the clouds will not reap.
