The past is History - The future is Mystery - The Present is Pastry

The past is History
The future is Mystery
The Present is Pastry

Learn from your past
Develop your present
This way safe is future

This is a slow process
We are always in haste
On the path of Blind Race

In present we make mistakes
Outcome your future is unsafe
We fall prey to our own trap

Now we are lost in space
Not get anything in haste
See our future is at stake

We are on road to short cuts
Look everything green in State
It is not long lasting, it is fake

This way what you want don't get
You were & further you get frustrate
Follow the truth peace of mind to get

You are in peace & in peaceful state
Life is easy going & are on right track
Problems we always understand late!
