Don’t chase the future,
it’ll come in its own time
no matter how fast your feet.
Don’t flee the past,
the only hands it has to seize you
are those holding the baggage you carry.
Don’t squander the moment,
it’s a present you’ll never see again
and if you aren’t in it then where are you?
In the future or the past.
