When will you learn, dear heart?
The world around you
is not what it pretends to be.
Reality is uncovered for you, one day at a time
utterly indifferent to what you have in mind.
Blessed are those with certainty about outcomes
You are cursed with doubts for all aphorisms
Why, oh why, dear heart
do you elongate the past?
Can you not just forget
that you stumbled into the present?
Every station in life has a future.
Look far enough and nothing else will matter.
Will you ever learn, dear Heart?
Written by my friend and fellow poet and remarkable author of fine books, Rashid Osmani
