The past is past
What’s been done is done
You can’t go back
This moment
The next second
Tick tock
That is what there is
To live
Each new breath
is a gift

  1. What’s been done is an old decrepit building. And now it’s best to bring in the press, blow the warning horn and commence the controlled implosion. The crowd loves destruction. Everyone wonders if there is a plan for a new building. If you left a treasure in a former home, hurray up and retrieve what you can from it before they blow it up. The past is never done; it bleeds into the future. Watch out for the last breath of the camel when there’s no water at the oasis.
