“Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood”. T. S. Eliot

This is from a few years back..



Take a deep breath,


If only for right now,

In this moment,

Take a step back,


Past this present future,

Jumping in to the unknown,

Take this life as it comes,


Can change this world,

No time to waste.

Right Now.

    I like the wordplay on the word ‘past.’ It took me a couple of reads, but I finally got it! Very little words, very big meaning. Live, look, love. They kind of come like ideas or breathes. I can’t piece it all together completely but it’s about life and how we need to kind of take it easy and just love. Very nice

      Yes šŸ™‚ I like to play on words like that. Exactly, so many people are so focused on things that don’t really matter. People need to focus on the smaller things in life and enjoying and loving life because tomorrow isn’t promised. šŸ™‚
