City Sky

live

By Matthew W.F. Senior

living in the moment:

the future is never;

the past will last, but for a flash;

now is forever;

then we die.

longing for the future:

tomorrow is forever;

the past is never;

today will last, but for a flash;

we never see the birds in the sky;

we never feel the snow fall from the sky;

we lay foundations, for future generations;

then we die.

trapped in the past:

the future is never;

before is forever;

today will last, but for a flash,

adding to the nostalgia cache;

we never live;

we never die.

This was written on a bus.
