i’m living in the moment
this moment right now
I don’t know what I’ve
done before and have
forgotten my plans for
the future. this moment
is all I have, no past,
no future, just now

 


i’m asked a question
and my mind goes blank
like a painters canvas.
there is nothing there.
I feel as if I am living
a breathing death, frozen
to the spot, unable to think
or speak or move, terrified
as I try to process what is
happening to me, a vision of
my future that is more
frightening than any
dystopian vision I know, a
vision of never remembering
my past, my friends, my life,
a mind of blank canvases going
through motions that don’t
register. I am so scared.

reflections of a mill

the old gritstone mill
looks at its reflection
in the darkness
of the still canal
ghosts of workers
men, women and children
float by on currents
staring at the mill
that was their life
going to places new
to haunt again

my reflection
my present
future and past

as I walk by the glass
in my reflection
i see my present,
future and past


regret nothing, live
what is gone
cannot be undone
distant memories
still haunt you
stop them taking
over your mind
the past cannot
be altered
the present can
be created
live your life anew
with no regrets
 


looking over the valley
to the big school
far away on the hill
where dreams will come true
i will be so big, so mature
i will know everything
and be anything i want to be…
i wish i could dust
off the years of adulthood
lose my life experience
forget all the joy and pain
forgive so many
say sorry to many more
empty my mind of knowledge
and enjoy that one
moment of childhood innocence
forever
 


Live for the here, live for the now, live in the present, the past is gone and cannot be undone, only learned from, the future is unknown and we can only dream about what it holds, today may be your last or it may be the day life changes forever, nobody knows, but unless you live in the present, do your best, push yourself higher and further, be the best you can, then your future may be may be bleak, do your best and see what opportunities open up for you…AS 2015
