Living for today

Where do I see myself before I die
I know not, I list not
The thought of death does not make me cry
I care not, I fret not!

I know not, I list not
What future holds for me
I care not, I fret not
’bout things beyond me!

What future holds for me
Will unfold day by day
Thinking ’bout things beyond me
I spoil not my today!

What will unfold day by day
I’d rather it be a surprise
I will spoil not my today
’tis best not to crib nor criticize.

I’d rather tomorrow be full of surprise
I try my best to neitherΒ hurt nor harm
’tis best not to crib nor criticize
My mantra is to chill and be calm.

I try my best to neitherΒ hurt nor harm
The thought of death does not make me cry
My mantra is to chill and be calm
I see myself being me before I die.

  1. I loved this positively grounding poem dear Punam – I will not spoil my today, live in absolute wonderment and curiosity fo reach tomorrow as it comes – this is the message I take away and agree with πŸ™‚

  2. Wowza, great poem (of course)–and I so wish I had your “chill” attitude, calm and collected. I’m making strides though–progress preferred to perfectionism! πŸ™‚ ❀
