Living In The Moment

Living In The Moment


Many are backsliding — face forward into the future, steps going back towards their ugly past. But I scarcely do the Moonwalk.

My past isn’t perfect and I don’t know if my future will be tense. But my present is continuous, so I immerse my being in every single moment I feature.

For me there is no yesterday and tomorrow is like the shadow that always elude me.

All I know is Today.

Today is the only day I have to love; the only day I have to sing.
Today, I say. Not two days.
Day to Day, all I have are Todays.

I spread my hand as the wind blows against me softly. I listen to the different tales it tells as it brushes against my earlobes.
I kick off my shoes and caress the dirt with my bare foot. She smiles, happy to see me trekking unmeasured miles.

Soon, I approach the place where the answer to ‘when?’ Is ‘now’; where Yesterdays are obsolete and Tomorrows are not seen as a Noun.

Today, I kick excuses out the backdoor, keeping company with myself and with deserted Nature. Today, I say. Not tomorrow; not some unknown future.
Today, I live.
