Life Lives Here in the Now

by Zachary A. Horn

I can
do nothing
about the past.

The future
is not
guaranteed.

I lived
in the past
I may not
live in
the future.

I am alive
only in the
present moment.

Life lives
here
in the now.

The past
is a graveyard
the future
a dream.

I will not
agonize over
dead things.

I will not
worry about
dreams.

I will live
among
the living.

Where
joy and light
lives.

I will
make my present
a heaven
until I have no
presents left.

I will be good
and practice virtue
without regret
for the past
or hope
for the future.
