Life is now!

Your life is now
it is not yesterday
it is not tomorrow
your life is now or it is not at all.

Yesterday it is gone
tomorrow may never be
our life is now or it is not at all.

Yesterday is but a memory,
a thought, an illusion of consideration
consideration of what was or might have been
but it will not be for yesterday it is gone.

Our life is now or it is not at all.

Tomorrow is but a vapor of hope
Hope and expectations for what might be
what might be but we cannot be sure
tomorrow is only an illusion of our desires

Our life is now or it is not at all.

Wisdom calls us to prepare for the future
Wisdom calls us to learn from the past
But truth reminds us…

Today is what we have.
Now is what we share.
This moment is all there truly is.

Our life is now or it is not at all.
