Why The Future Says The Present?

When living in the future
the present simply passes by;
and when the future is arriving
it’s old hat and by it flies.

When the present is your focus
you’ve no time to look ahead
for each day has troubles plenty
they’re enough for you to dread;

the present gets full attention,
must be dealt with now, today,
there’s no time to put it off,
which translates you can’t delay.

When our focus is the future
we miss the life planned for today
often cause it slid right past us
cause our thoughts were days away.

Let’s try living in the present,
tomorrow’s not promised, guaranteed
and the things that we are missing
are the very things that we all need.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
