Understand that the present is all you have, no
life in the past, gone
are those days, future
hope is always a second away,
pleasant to think about, but
you’ll never catch it.
no life outside the now,
no hell outside the now,
no heaven outside the now,
no bliss outside the now.
Wasting the present; wasting life
dreaming of different lives; living only one
that one goes quickly, as
keep dreaming, hoping, praying,
passivity isn’t rewarded, life
is meant for the active, for
only they can catch the fleeting present, while
the passive merely exist, watching the flickering stars at night.
Your hourglass empties,
you could only have one grain of sand left,
but you always act as if there are thousands, then
when life ends, we
may say it ended abruptly, but
each wasted day progressed towards the sudden cessation.
