Now Is All We've Got - Poem by Samuel Segun Toluwalase

Forever

We use to have time as ours
Love will remember

Now we only have now
We have have ourselves

Our future not ours to tell
But our present ours to craft

    O now! It disappears every nanosecond. However, the poem rests on the common assumption of the present. It carries time into a maleable state. (Report)Reply

    The poem draws a comparative study of relative time brilliantly. Dear friend Samuel, you're very promising but we expect more accuracy from you in future. Thank you very much for sharing your nice thought with us.
