there's no way I could have forever

there’s only now for us to be together

if we let it slip away because you cower

I cannot promise my tomorrow or after

we only have today to feel this way

so love me today or my impulse coy away

Hmmm. A concise version of the 'ole Nike motto: "Just do

Hmmm. To make people happy; that's your hobby. Maybe I'm
either a realist or pessimist, but it's been my experience,
that if your hobby is making others happy, sooner or later,
they'll let you down. Not a personal comment about your family; just my view on people in general.

How about THIS hobby: MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY. And if one succeeds in making others happy in the process, so be it. If not, then one won't be so disappointed.

This piece represents the thinking of today's society.

How important it is to live for the moment. How dangerous it is at the same time. Your poem could start a discussion that could last a semester! I enjoyed.

Nice piece and I love the meaning, although I do think the last line could use a bit of work. Keep writing!

Thanks all for your kind comments on this one.
I shall visit each one of your sites to write my
deepest appreciation. I think I owe it to Jason.
And for you Jason….’While others crave for ore,
you crave nothing at all because the ore is
already in your core’.

PostPoem is a mine of talents, wits and glory.
Thanks to you Jason. You’ve revive my penchant
for poetry when I thought I already forgot it.

You have a knack for saying what you think it small succint verses. I hope you continue to write as I find that practice makes perfect is true of most habits and hobbies. It makes "perfect" sense at least to do something that eases your mind as much as it pleases the reader to read it. Good job. That last line kind of threw me, but I really like one I read earlier, "Life After Twenty-Five". Actually, I find it not an nightmare but a dream come true. Keep writing and I'll keep reading.

I loved this.
Use the Present moment, ev eryone should heed this.
Tomorrow will take care of itself. Its the PRESENT that hold everything, past as well as future, eternal present.

Keep writing my friend!
Enjoyed it.
