Now, this very moment, this second that ticked
It’s gone, forever much before we even noticed
Little, did we know
That it was bestowed
With the key to glee unlimited!
We neglect the ‘now’ aiming to outreach
And worry about a future utterly out of reach
Forfeiting the present under the pretext
That we are working for the future that’ll come next
The pursuit for the future goes on and on
Until in the end, all time is gone
We’ll realize we’ve been machines all this while
Toiling day and night without even a smile
Wasting this precious life without living
The tiny moments, right from the beginning
Now that we know that we were amiss
We can’t afford even a second to be missed
As only living in the ‘now’ will turn life into a bliss!
Thank you for reading!
