A poem about the now

It’s now and it’s now,

And it’s now again.

It’s never tomorrow,

Or then or when.

It’s today, it’s here,

It’s never not now.

Want to live in the moment?

Stop wondering how.

You’re already in it.

Right now, and now, too.

To live now, then now,

Is all we can do.

Today is the time —

— and the time is here.

Every moment is now,

The next now’s creeping near.

So embrace it. Chase it,

Live here in the now.

Want to travel through time?

Keep living — that’s how.

About the Creator


I’m a writer, a storyteller, a lunatic. I imagine in a parallel universe I might be a caricaturist or a botanist or somewhere asleep on the moon — but here, I am a writer, turning moments into multiverses and making homes out of them.
