Baby lives each moment

Life revolves around “now”

Without concept of time

Crying for mealtime’s chow


Months gather, move along

Sunrise into sunset

Child understands today

Playing, life’s fun outlet


Seasons bring transitions

Into another year

Life’s pace steps more quickly

Walking without much fear


Adulthood brings worry

Life’s major burdens rise

Innocence vanishes

Searching promising skies


Before morning arrives

Leftover tasks will keep

Today’s curtain descends

Resting, tomorrow sleeps

  1. Ah, to remain childlike
    While maturing to be seen
    As thoughtful and intelligent
    Means avoiding the extreme

    Living in the now
    Avoiding over-thinkin’
    Keeps life more playful
    Tedium can be stinkin’
