A Mostly Elsewhere Life - Poem by Frank Davis, Sr.

Except for the first few
childhood years, youth
typically inhabits a myriad
of imagined futures-
while the old prefer
to dwell in their own pasts.
Animals, we are told, abide
totally in the present; few
humans can long remain
similarly focused. It would
appear, then, that Now
is not our natural home.

    There is a great deal of truth in this and I often wonder if the world would be a less troubled place if people would focus on improving matters NOW and quit dwelling in the past or looking for their ship to come around the corner in the near future. (Report) Reply
