That’s how time was perceived then
Those simpler times!
As a teenager, time is or should I say was?
Perceived as moments, as memories
That happened in the past, forget it
That hasn’t happened yet, forget it
That is happening, live it. Try at least?
That’s what they said
As a biology student,
The reality is the biochemical transmission brain makes
Now, as a psychology student,
The brain takes at least two tenth of a second to process anything
So, by the time you hear that sound
By the time you see that person
By the time you feel that kiss
By the time you smell that coffee brewing
That moment has already passed
You are basically living in the past
So, what exactly is this present we are all so determined is what we should be living in??
