Tick-Tock

Yesterday never existed; it was only Now at the time
Tomorrow will never come as Now has already arrived
We only live in the moment; everything else is gone
No point in waiting; because Now won’t wait too long

Don’t look back at the things you can’t retrieve
Your memories can only be played in the Now
Nothing happens tomorrow as it will never come
Absorb yourself in Now; because once it’s done it’s done

Time it ticks on by
The clock will never stop
What follows every tick right Now
Is a perfectly weighted tock
Amplified by the eternal Devil’s clock

this is so perfectly weighted in balance though, it swings. my mind was going back and forth with the beat! I liked these lines best:

Time it ticks on by
The clock will never stop
What follows every tick right Now
Is a perfectly weighted tock
Amplified by the eternal Devil’s clock

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I appreciate you reading & commenting. It's always good to know which lines you like.

I always look forward to receiving your comments.

You are always one to offer a critique, not just to me but to nearly all poems on Neopoet. I don't know what they'd do without you. Without you, this place would be very quiet. Knowing you are one of the management that actually gets involved in the day to day running is a comfort to us all.

Can we vote for you to be AEC leader, they need someone that everybody likes & trusts in a position of influence.

Keep doing what you do, we love you for it & Neopoet is better off for having you. Thinking about it I only ever see you & Gee actually taking an interest in the poems being posted.

love

BUT the past teaches us how to deal with things and the future gives us incentive to do so. But I'll leave with good poem.....for now lol

yes I understand what you are saying & agree wholeheartedly.

I have learnt much from the past I have experienced & certainly use the future to see what changes in my life I can make & set goals. For NOW I'll sit comfortably in the NOW.

cheers mate,
