Live In The Very Minute

Advantage of Foresight is today’s prompt put forth by The Daily Post.

Here’s the idea:  You’ve been granted the power to predict the future!  The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less).  How would you use this power, if at all?


Worry not for tomorrow

Might it be filled with sorrow

It is a much better way

To live in each moment this day


Future is here soon enough

Living for Someday sounds rough

Tomorrow is not promised

I mean, let’s be honest


All we have is today – maybe not even that

But to live each moment as it’s our very last

We have this minute, not the next nor the past

This would be a much wiser time to pass


Plan for the morrow

Might it Someday come

But make memories for then

With the minute you’re in

Fill with laughter and love

Children grow fast enough
