Living the moment


For every ifs and buts,

A moment is lost.

For every what ifs and only ifs,

A moment is lost.


For every tear remembered,

A smile vanishes.

For every dark cloud feared,

A silver lining goes unnoticed.


If one ever owed oneself anything amidst all this chaos,

It is the moments, the moments one misses out on.

For the maturity and wisdom one chases,

The child inside remains muted.


For every tomorrow’s that are being chased,

One misses out on today’s and now’s.


We owe ourselves.

We owe ourselves moments.

We owe ourselves living in the moment.
