Oh my gosh I was totally going to write a poem right now, but then I opened my notes and found this one! I love when stuff I wrote in the past is relevant to my present.
I’m thinking unnecessarilyWorking myself into a frenzyAbout a future I never cared forAnd now I fear moreOf these thoughtsWill plague meDrive me insane – please!Why can’t I just liveHow I want to?
But that’s exactly the problem –And these travel in tandem –So many questions on hand whenI just want to be quietAnd live life in the momentThe present, to own itNot hold a grudge over what’s been stolenAnd continue to hold my wounds open.
Yes, I plan for tomorrow today,But that doesn’t mean I should let slip awayAll the precious gifts that are right now before meBecause I’m preoccupied with a cloud hovering o’er me.And so what if it lets loose and it rains?It will not be my first time experiencing painAnd just like before, I will be made stronger.I will not die. I will only last longer.
