About life

Life, as far as one knows or desires to know about, is nothing more than a clutter of verbs and words, dawns and twilights, seconds that were and will be.
It is futile to contemplate the present since we know less about it than the past or the future.

The future depends on dreams and plans regardless of their realization, the past is instead outlined by experiences that we remember. 

Contemplation of our present self is therefore a loss of past and future, or rather very precious thoughts.

  2. I said this a million times but you are very talented. Not only writing but also creating a context for your poetry, using music and photos like that. You make reading your stuff a fulfilling experience. Great job!

  6. I agree as long as you stay focused on your goals, i.e. future. Let's not get too emo.

  7. @Uberbyron today we call melancholy people 'the emo generation" but, does it really matter, the name? In the ancient Greek many people did the same, so were they emo? As far as I know, since we stand in front of someone and we judge him, well, we are loosing precious second of our life. So the point is, true or not true?

  8. Sometimes I do like to think about life in those terms. I would sometimes have random brief bouts of existential angst.

  9. Someone once said that you should really enjoy and value the moment, it's really a gift - that's why it's called the present. I don't think we should focus on the past too much - only to not make the same mistakes and sometimes - to remember the good moments. That often gives you wings in the present. So can thinking about the future. I agree with you, still we should put more emphasis on thoughtful actions, mainly actions.

  12. The present is a very intriguing concept. The actual experience often pales to the memory of the experience and/or the anticipation of the experience. We are a function of our memory and expectation, and the present seems almost seems secondary, as the fulcrum by which one passes into the other.
