The Past

What’s past is past

Dwell on the past

and squander the present

The present is ever evolving

It is on a continuous journey

moving on, no returns

Use it or lose it

It cannot be bartered or

sold as stocks

It is here this minute and

gone in another

The past is part of our being

The present like a fire pit

ignites our dreams and feelings

The past can transcend

It cannot be changed
