I’m over all of this,
The striving to be somewhere else,
Or someone else.
To be prettier, slimmer,
Or cleverer, or more successful,
In the future.
To constantly look beyond today,
Backwards or forwards.
Life‘s progression delivers progress
Without my help.
Its lessons fluctuate in their gravity
With a curious wisdom.
I’m still alive, I still survive,
So why not thrive,
Experiencing and embracing every nuance
Of today only?
I open my heart fully to the mysteries,
To the joys and sorrows
That may occur today.
Today’s happenings are unique,
Never to be repeated.
I don’t want to miss a moment.
Bring it on, I say!
