Past, present, future.
One to leave, one to live, one to learn.
Then, now, later.
You can’t keep, you can’t haste, you can’t hide.
Rewind, play, fast forward.
You cry, then smile, and life goes on.
Beginning, middle, end.
It was your story, now it’s time to begin mine.

I like the sheer simplicity and brevity of this poem.

Thank you. And I guess I wanted to write it simple because life isn't hard. Or rather, if you think right, really think, and act the way you just know is right, then it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. And the flow of poetry. It doesn't have to be difficult to understand. It just is.
