Live In Present

Living in the past
and swinging in the memories
Might be soothing to your heart
But it makes you unfit to live in reality
Is it not an escape from life
Like daylight it spreads on your mind
And dark nights encroach life
Come out of it and live in the present
Enjoy every bit of it
Because today's beautiful moments
Will be tommorow's sweet memories

Rini, those who constantly live in the past miss out on what is happening around them. Well penned.++10 Robert
Hi Rini, Lovely poem exuding your innate positive energy. Past is something which nobody can change. So, one should move ahead leaning his lessons from the past failures and gaining energy from the successes. Living in the past is for the mentally handicapped. One should learn to live in the present, building one's future. Wonderfully written. Congrats. -unnikrishnan
