Past, Present, Future


Life, lived; not by the, present, contained within the Now,
so thinking of a recollect - of what your mind will allow

means present becomes, neglect - and past, does future infect,

no change can be made- of what past has played,
to live in its control- decays the soul

for only in now, can a person be whole - only in now, can a body contain the soul.

thought of a future that has not yet played- a worry of a nothing, means, now, gets
mislaid.

no future is set - none should forget

if a present moment in now is given neglect-
a life will be stained with the inks of regret.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
