History is but a story

I came up with this while eating my lunch lol.

History is but a story

We weren't there - how could we fathom

how things must have been?

History is but a story

But like Aesop's fables it holds lessons for us all

 

The future is but a fancy

How can we see, how can we know

the events which will unfold?

The future is but a fancy

But like death and despair it lingers on our mind

It's very much real in that respect

 

The present is our only reality

When feelings are fresh, sense awake;

Memories fade and become as a dream.

The present is our only reality

But what happens now affects other not-now things

The End
