Before Present Became Past

Why aren't we like before?

A question we routinely ask.

The answer is complex yet it’s not a farce.

Before is the past and the past has passed

we didn’t make the most of it,

maybe because we never knew it wouldn’t last.

The world lives in the present learning from its past,

repeating the same mistakes over and over in bits and parts.

The apologies though are different,

there is no difference in thoughts.

Past lives in the present and dreams of a future,

based on those failures we didn’t care to mask.

So we move forward shaping our future,

bulldozing the misadventures of all that we lost.

But we shall all reach a point when we look back and ask,

Why aren't we like before?

The answer is simple and yet it’s not a farce.

We are not because ‘before’ never lasts,

We become today & ‘before’ goes on to becoming our tomorrow’s past.
