Short and sweet, very wonderful. The trick with short poetry is getting the point across clearly and still adding a touch of style. Here, you manage to balance the writing perfectly. It is great!

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Wow, this piece was amazing. All the words were chosen with such care, and they fit perfectly together. You accomplished establishing a meaning with so few words with your own personal style. I loved how the topic was one most people can relate to. Loved it, and continue writing!!!!

I love how short and simple you left it, yet you can find the meaning so easily. It leaves you wordless.

If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
