Time

Do not abide in the past,

it destroys the now.

Do not assume the future,

it denies the present.

Heart lingering,

future questing,

rejecting happiness

gifted for today.

Depression, doom,

a kismet of failure,

life’s lot

to wallow in the gloom.

Live the moment,

blessed new dawn,

history buried,

future unwritten.

Yesterday cannot be altered,

tomorrow not fashioned.

Today is yours –

shape, embrace,

breathe.
