Lola Sanchez

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Only fools live in the future
only the regretful
live in the past

but very few live in the now
the hardest part of all

dreams of what to come
can be changed
and the past can be accepted

but the now?
Can only be survived

Soon it will be the past
then we will regretfully accept

    A general truth that we tend to ignore, said beautifully.
