 In life we have just one look

Do not look behind

Time is passing swiftly

Unseen by the blind

Life can be the greatest thing

That you or I could see

But unless you take that first step

How could you ever be

To linger for so long

On a moment that had gone

Is just a waste of time

To taste the fruit of life

Is the reason to go on.




















Author's Notes:
I wrote this poem when i was about 22 i re-discovered it in on old folder. I have left it exactly as i wrote it. My own views of life have changed somewhat but i think the essence of this write remains the same for me today.
