Before And Now - Poem by Vida Nenadic

When I had someone to call me
I had no phone.
Now I have two phones
But have no one who calls.

When many would have visited me
I had no home.
Now I have home
But no one comes to visit.

When I had somewhere to go
I had no way to leave.
Now I have a car
But have nowhere to go.

When I wanted to work
They said I lacked experience.
Now I have experience
But have no wish to work for others.

When I was invited to travel
I had no time for journeys.
Now I have the time
But no one….to travel with.

    Wonderful poetry.
    Time changes and so do we.
    We wish a lot of things but often we find we have lost our purposes.
    The material bliss we oft long for also takes away a lot from us and we wonder what exactly we desired! Very profound thought expressed in simple words.Great.
