Left Behind

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.
The present only is our own,
So live, love, toil with a will
Place no faith in “Tomorrow”
For the clock may then be still.

  1. This is just great Scott, I’m looking forward to the series.

  2. “The present only is our own” he tells us.
    I disagree.
    As you have shown us here Scott we always have yesterday. Furthermore, although we should not dwell on it, we should rejoice it.

  3. “Place no faith in”Tomorrow”
    For the clock MAY the be still”
    Then again it may not!

    Honour the past because it is what makes you who you are BUT today is on step in the journey of who you want to be, tomorrow is the next. I will never live today as if there may be no tomorrow but because there probably will be a tomorrow and that is exciting!

  4. There will come a time when tomorrow will not exist, it is inevitable. We have to make the most of the time we have to enjoy each day we wake up, I think it was Jay Maisel who I heard on a podcast say photograph each day as if it is your last as one day it will. This way you will put all your energy into creating the visual poem that will move people.

  5. I love this series . While tomorrow may never come, and we should love life as though it might not, the now is the only time that we can change anything, anything at a all However the past ,is with us whether we like it or not. It hides in our sub conscious . I think that’s what this image is about i like it.
