Time Counts

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

...

"

Just a microsecond ago,

life was somewhere in the past.

No one knows how it'll go

until the present comes around.

While on its journey to morrow,

the future keeps remaining blank.

How I wish to know this unknown,

and not just blindingly following life.

Interesting take. I like to live life in the moment and I want to feel like I am in control.

Thank you so much, JungLee.
I completely get what you're saying (well expressed - very exact in how you describe it) . . . but I disagree. For me, the lifelong journey of spiritual understanding has been centered around SURRENDER. I don't want to know what's coming up. I don't want to be able to control what happens. The beauty of surrender is responding in the moment. When we are given a glimpse of something in the future, we obsess looking ahead, & we miss the present moments ticking by unnoticed *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Thank you very much, Neville.
My mind was once obsessed with the future, as this poem conveys. But, as I’ve aged, I care less about tomorrow than today. Maybe that blindfold is a blessing. Looking back, I’m blessed knowing I didn’t know in advance the horrors I’ve endured. A thought-provoking poem, Kay.

Hi, Kay. I think you’ve hit on something we all wish we could know. If we could just see a little bit ahead we might save ourselves a lot of trouble. And also worry. There are a lot of mysteries in life. I can never make up my mind if they are positive or negative. I feel different about that according to the day.

I do enjoy your thoughts presented as a question to all of us here reading. It’s a great way to understand more.

Btw, in your last line, I think blindly would work better grammatically. Nice work, here!
