Take Nothing For GrantedTake nothing for granted,Take Nothing For Granted7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not even the smallest gesture...
Indulge in each second, as if you fear it could be the last, since time slows for no one.
It hurries along to some unseen end
as if it fears it would be late to the destination which seems to take an eternity to reach.
And still we groan that it may not be moving quickly enough
When all is said and done, only the present moment exists
The past is gone, and what lies before is not yet here.
What else is is of importance to the task at hand?
Dragonflies die young,
and time is inevitably wasted.
Find it precious still,
And take nothing for granted.
It may soon be gone.
