What do You Have to Lose? – My Weekly Poem 3/15/2021

Here is my poem for last week’s prompt, What do You Have to Lose?:

Life is Only Now

Death means losing everything
that will never come to be.
Things we thought would happen
that now must fade away.

Illness can take everything
we thought might come to be
and forces daily reckonings
of what must fade away.

A beautifully imagined future
can inspire daily toils
but it’s a path fraught with danger
as reality unfolds.

Live in the present, not the future,
unpack it in your mind.
Find hope and inspiration
letting reality unfold.
