As a child

As a child I thought of numerous things

the things which always gave me joy

but I realised that those were just dreams

I forgot to let that time enjoy

I always thought of future instead

and always wove dreams

but today as I am in future now

I want that time to come to me.

how strange is the game of life

we do not enjoy the moment we are in

instead we act like a pendulum

moving between past and future

to shine and prove our existence.

  1. So true! Appreciating the present keeps regrets away later, I think about my past a lot and I often feel nostalgic for those moments that are lost. Beautiful poem💖
