The past had already formed.
The future has yet to form.
Only in the present is forming.
William Shakespeare wrote,
‘Whereof what’s past is prologue…’
Not really passed away,
but the harbinger of things to come?
‘… what to come, in yours and my discharge.’
Thus, what’s past is not epilogue.
Not really the end yet,
just the probable precursor of things to come.
What then is the true pivoter,
of what things to come, and how they will be received?
It is what you do now, and how,
according to lessons from the past.
Learn from history —
that good to keep repeating,
that bad to never ever repeat.
