living in the now

you can only live
in the now

has gone
as a wow

may come
not ever as a tomorrow
but again another now

so remember
the now
live it as you may
some how

just enjoy now

This is the message of the world, if we live our lives in the now, the worry about tomorrow, how to survive, how to leave a better tomorrow would fizzle out of our minds. We must be contented with what we have. We must appreciate life no matter how little we gain from it.

Very informative!

"Poetic license
the poets
the free will to
embroider a good tale
and deviate from the established rules of language"~Jackweb

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I am reminded of a thing I used to say as a kid.
I am not sure if I made it up myself or heard it somewhere.

"Tomorrow never gets here, because when it gets here, it turns into Today
and when it is past, it is Yesterday. Nice little poem about how we should live for today.
~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

thanks for the understanding my friend always said tomorrow comes only as another today ere he passed away WE never say perhaps what has been said before 7.5 billions already walked the world we will not be the last thanks all
history repeats u
ALL know
