General Poem


Something we often think about,
And no matter what we say,
We are often plagued with regret and doubt.

The day before,
It may have seemed like life is child’s play,
But now reality has knocked on your door,
And the demons of the past are for you to slay.

We think living in the past is easy,
And embracing the present is hard,
When it is actually the past that makes us queasy
And the present that allows you to let down your guard.

The past may seem to make you happy,
But it is the present that defines you,
Over time, you realize that it is the past that makes you feel crappy,
And it is the present that helps you get over feeling blue.
