Patient, the future
It’s not going anywhere
So no need to rush

  1. Love this, apt, concise and straight to the point!


  2. I wish I could heed these words. I feel, constantly, that time is slipping me by and I never have enough of it to do what I plan day to day which results in my personal spectrum of life shrinking. I need to rush it otherwise the future passes by in the blink of an eye. But I hope I get time to calm down and relax soon.


  3. Thanks for the calming reminder, Ben.


  4. This is not a poem of a young man, Ben Naga. I celebrate this particular haiku, but the young man that I once was would not have believed it as he chased the future into his old age.
