Three jars

If everything that ever was

Ever is and ever would be

Resided in a room within three jars

Which would you pick up first?


Would you stare into the past?

The images clear and crisp as day

And let your heart be warmed

With happy memories?


Would you stare at the future?

And see what is to come

However dark or light it may be

Knowing it could not be changed?


Or would you stare at the present

Seeing what good you have now

What opportunities lay open to you

And what clay you must shape your future with?


Which of these three most appeal to you

Which have the most benefit to you

What do you wish to know?

What do you hope to never see?


Choose wisely from these jars three.
