The Present is a Gift

by Sarah Loyd 18 days ago in performance poetry

Time is precious

Can’t change the past

No control of the future

One can only control the present

****

What matters is the now

The choices we make now

Living in the moment is delicate

It can be freeing

*****

Past regrets are debilitating

Future predictions are unknown

Why think about them so much

******

The past doesn’t matter anymore

The future is an unlived space

It doesn’t come until the next day

Or even the next minute

*****

Live in the moment

Anchor in the present

Because the present is a precious gift

Enjoy it while you have it

You never know what you might miss
