The Future Lives In Today…

The future

We fuss about it and dream about it

Yet, it lies in the present

In Today

Our life is encased in the tiny dots of the day

And the day keep moving towards the future

The future lies still, waiting

As we sojourn along

Day by day

The future

It appears so far away, still

There is much time to get there we tell ourselves

Day by day, we awake

And the future silently slides through our fingers

We let time evaporate and varnish

While still pondering on the future

Like a mirage, time flew across the horizon

So much time

So much time

So much time

Suddenly we realised that so much time was wasted

And we are gobsmacked


The future

We squandered it

We consumed it

In frivolities

We let it slip through us

We watched it drain like water in a sink

Oh! The future

Is buried in today

Seize the present now

Seize it, Now

Cos going backwards to retrieve time

Only ends with the present

Time lost cannot be salvaged



Peace and Love!
