Time


Staying only a while
short brief fleeting
here then gone
forever moving

Past long gone
future not arrived
present counted in
only seconds


Each one small
gone in a blink
wasted on so much
frivolity

Once gone
never to return
lost in the sea
of what was

attend to the
here and now
before it is
lost and forgotten

Once gone it
can never be
repeated
time

Now



Past is gone
future not yet here
there is only
now

Memories no regrets
over what was
now is all
we have

Tomorrow awaits
but is not
reside only in
the now

This moment
nothing more
live in this
now

Shake off
the past
do not worry
for the future

Now today
this instant
now is all the
time we have

Promise


There is no promise of tomorrow
no guarantee of another day
nothing to assure a life lived longer
no promise one can have

Yesterday is gone past now dead
those things mean nothing now
forgotten pains worthless hurts
now past away into shadow

Tomorrow not promised not even here
no need to worry or to fret
nothing one can do about what is not here yet
something that is only a possibility

There is only today only this moment
everything else means little
one promise only to live in this day
for it is all we truly have

Stronger


The past serves only one purpose, to make you stronger
to learn and move on
to let go and grow
to never look back always forward

Those who hurt you only serve to make you stronger
every lie and betrayal
every unkind word and deed
every fresh stab of the knife
only gives you strength

There is no life living in the past
dwelling on things gone and meaningless
there is only what’s ahead
the future and what you make of it

No need to live in constant blame
to reopen the wounds of the past
they are gone and done
and you can now choose to live stronger
