Read Poem: Live in the Past, by Jaden Baxter

If the future has been frozen
cause you’re present in the past,
It may seem the life you’ve chosen
has been moving fairly fast.

For the memories have blended
to a smoothie of events,
and the seconds were suspended,
when you spent them making sense –

Of the short and sterile seasons,
That would quickly pass you by,
Never giving any reasons,
To assume that time would fly.

Always dwelling on the former,
Never thinking in the now,
Til’ your days are getting warmer,
And you know exactly how –

How the world keeps on spinning,
Even if your days have gone,
Even when your time is thinning,
it’ll just keep moving on.
