People never stop and look
To see what they have passed.
Nor do they look ahead;
They leave questions unasked.
To most a rose is decoration,
Not to be handled, felt, or sniffed,
And very rarely do people pause
to go and take a whiff.
Most people do not realize
that the future is the past ahead,
that they can move the rocks of life
and not trip on them instead.
You may choose to dawdle in the past
or focus on the future.
But the present is the best time
that many leave unnurtured.
