Limited Time - Poem by Abdulrazak Aralimatti

What else can you do,
When there's no time to prove.

Limited is the time provided,
And the task into work divided.

The past is a burden,
Future is uncertain.

The present is only the assurance.

    Very true dear Abdulrazak, and even then the present doesn't always give us any assurance that we will not be taken by death itself. Nothing in our lives is for sure is it? Thank you for this wonderful poem. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Thought provoking poem.
    There really hangs so much mystery around time.
    Often not enough, sometimes too much.
    One moment ago, gone forever,
    One moment from now, anything may happen.
    While writing this, moments that were to happen
    have happened and are gone forever, making up part of the un-erasable past.
    Moments come so fast and yet the concept of eternity seems so vast
    Good poem, Razak.

    Your poem rings the truth Eckhart Tolle tries to elaborate in his famous works. There is only the NOW. (Report) Reply

    Time is of vital importance in life. Today is the only reality.
    Philosophical lines expressed most eloquently.
