So this is the first poem I've ever written. Is it any good? - Is the structure right? Does it make sense? I welcome any feedback which will help me improve.

Live for Now

PROMPT: Time Traveler

Back and back I go,
Eras passing by,
Bombs, castles, pyramids.
All of time in the blink of an eye.

Our lives are short,
Time is long.
Thousands of generations,
Ghosts where they no longer belong.

What would it be like to live forever?
To watch people pass,
A decade, a century, a millenium.
Muffled as if behind glass.

For though life is fleeting,
That makes it special and true.
To travel through time,
Is to see everything yet have no clue.

Live the moment,
Enjoy the day.
The past is past,
And tomorrow is far away.
