If you’d rather have me recite this poem, here is a YouTube video of me doing exactly that.
The past,
didn't last.
The present,
seems dependent. 
The future,
could be wiser.
If you look behind.
You may remain blind.
If you look ahead.
Fear will have you dead.
If you live in the present.
By being completely absent.
You never lived.
So start living.
Begin by forgiving.
Yourself first.
Then those that cursed.
Between the two,
everyone in your zoo.
Family and friends, 
if you can make amends.
The past lines cannot be erased.
So why waste away more days.
The present is now.
Don't exit with a bow.
Whatever it takes.
Smell the coffee and awake.
Live in the moment.
Of that be a proponent.
The future who has seen.
It's time to wean.

  1. Tenses can be intense in the sense of leaving you out for being behind, being too present or being lost in trying to figure out what will happen next. Coffee does help restore order and a right sense of being.
