Aren't we pretending?

An instant reflection on ourselves

While having the breakfast,

without enjoying it,

we think about the lunch.

When having the lunch,

we dream about the desert,

don't we?

when relishing the desert,

we think about the nap,

which we're going to have later..

Tea, Dinner whatever the thing,

we love to stay beyond,

the line of present...

So aren't we pretending,

to live in the moment?

Or is that the way we tend to,

enjoy the present?

    Guilty here! I am one of these kind of people. I think this is common with overthinkers. But I must say you took such a deep point and presented in a beautiful way. Brilliant
