Living In The Now - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

What's gone has made you what you are
So don't fear what's ahead
Put trust in what will be, will be
And choose to live instead

Don't live in the now worrying
What may or may not be
Take this moment in your time
And live it totally

There's no time like the present
Breathe deep and feel alive
Living in the here and now
Will help you rise and thrive

Now is all there ever is
It's the only time that's real
Let the future take it's course
And leave the past to heal
