A Poem For Now, Today, This Moment - Poem by James Tipp
Our lives are lived in the millisecond of the moment
The past is beyond change, cannot be tampered with.
If only we knew this truth, instead we plan and wait.
Looking forward to the future living in a false tomorrow
I have witnessed so many disappointments first hand.
Listened to the tears of regret, seen the scars of waiting.
For a dawn that came and brought change unexpected.
Yet still I carry the burdens of yesterday and tomorrows hopes
Like a checklist to be dealt with and worked towards.
Whatever happened to ‘enjoy the moment’ thinking.
It is dismissed as unworkable despite its reality today.
What can you do to change yesterday or tomorrow?
What you can do is to change the plight of the poor and oppressed
You can do something now in this moment pray, give, now.
Then in the millisecond that you have you will have made a difference.
