Maya Hanson (mye3)


I Live For Now


You might live in the past
Trying to figure out your mysteries
by the moonlight of yesterday
But I prefer the present
Now,
I live for now

You might spend every single second
preparing for tomorrow
Hanging on to your future
But I’d rather be in the moment
Now,
I live for now

You might pay no attention
to me
You might be on the other end
of the neverending circle
But I want to be closer to you
To the world
Now,
I live for now

You might be in the shadows
all the time
Whispering with her
Her who hates me
Well, you can hate me too
I’ll let you hate me
As I stand in the spotlight
Now,
I live for now

You might wait silently
for things to happen
Not to me,
to you
But I’d rather happen to the world
Now,
I live for now

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
