What I Can’t Seem to Grasp


Now is not tomorrow and it’s definitely not yesterday

Now is action and surprise

Now is the time to seize the moment

It doesn’t last, but it lasts in history

Now is powerful and life changing

Now has impact


Right now will never happen again

Now is hard to catch, being that it is this breath, this step

It is pain, loss, and decision

Now is dark

Now is bright


It is promising, depressing, and foreboding

Now is innovative, intelligent, and positive

Now is a moment of boredom, a moment of suffering, a moment of hope


Now is here

Now is gone

It drives the accomplisher and terrifies the procrastinator

Now is begged to leave and pleaded with to stay

Now does not wait for us


Now is this image

this sight

this feeling

this touch

Now is always lost, and with it I am found
