Lesson

Lesson

By JFarrell

 

I’ve spent all my life

Crying over yesterday

Worrying over tomorrow

And

They do not matter

 

Like the sun

Breaking through the clouds

It dawned on me

Yesterday is gone

Tomorrow never comes

Now is all I

Any of us have

 

And

Though I cannot do what I want do now

If now I make a better choice

Don’t get drunk now

And keep making that better choice

In the now

A now will come when I can do

What I want to do now

 

Note: this is my 2nd day on the wagon, sober; if i make it through until Friday sober, it will be the longest time I’ve been sober in 15 years.

I wasted a lot of now, choosing to stay drunk, and I can not get all that wasted time back, I could be flying to Alabama now, if I had spent that time better

I AM NOT WASTING WHAT NOW I HAVE LEFT
