Present in the Now

“Just do it”
They told us
As kids and adolescents
Check! Mark
my words
Then they erased
All those learned lessons

To make us
Yuppy-clones, petrified of
“there is no wrong answer,”
all answers
were answers
depending on…
they were none
and all

so that decisions
we belabor
we have just made.
And more of your time
as we worry over
wasted time

Forget past
And future
Ground self
as we grind
Arabica beans
or count sheep
to sleep

We each only live once
in this very instant
that is already
long gone past,
and here
is now.
