Wasting Today (Poem)

clouds

Seconds pass so slowly
Years are gone in a blink
You never see the changes happening
But nothing stays the way you think
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow may not come
But today is wasted in a rush
in moments we wish were done
Tomorrow we’ll want today’s moments back
Tomorrow we’ll want today
But yesterday swallowed today’s moments
and buried them in memory’s haze
So as you hang your hat on tomorrow
You are missing all of today
and today will pass just like the cloud
Gone with all of your yesterdays.
