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
