Right Now: Dear Old Me

dear old me,


when you look back

and everything is a blur

try to remember with fondness      

the events that occurred


maybe you want to redo it      

the memories are still vivid              

or maybe you won’t remember

and trying makes you livid


no matter what 

don’t regret

trying to turn the handles back 

only speeds up the clock


i wish i could

and i bet you do more

but the best we can do 

is just live in the now 


look up, not down

move forward, not back

think of the future, not the past

i hope your life is on track
