Oh past

Oh past, oh past,
you happen so fast
why, this moment,
for a moment more, don’t last.

You compete with present,
and make every thing tense.
You beat everything,
including my common-sense.

Past scintillates, past motivates,
past indicates, past infuriates.
Generations it agitates,
when the facts one aggregates.

It is the past that captivates,
how the thoughts it activates.
