Poem: All We Have Is Now!

Updated on January 7, 2012

All you have Is Now!

Ley me first ask

myself the very

same question

They say what's

good for the geese

Is also very good

For the gander.

So again Why would I

Why would you

Why would anyone

who has been in

any relationship that

didn't work before

Be now so eagerly

looking forward

to that moment

when they'll

be doing it

again once more

The only thing

That I see is




With mostly

all others

before me!

They are simply

Padding up

To take that fall

Yeah! Yeah!

There are all

Ignoring that

silent voice

From inside

As it beckons

It continues

Calling them

warning them

Showing then

That very

same reason

Why some

people would

live almost

on a River.

And still be

Dying for just

One drink of Water!

Bob Marley said

In the abundance

of water that

the fool is thirsty.

There are some

People who will

run like a bats

out of hell

From the rain


Only to get into

their homes.

Where again

they run directly

into the shower!

I say because

I too was

once a kid!

If I only begin

to mention

Some of the

things that I did

Just from the

sound in my voice

Will come that fear

Showing you

that as a kid

I had no choice.

But now I have

over came all

of my Fears.

Someway / somehow.

I stepped up

And made a

change with me.

And now I

am here living

I bear witness

to transparency

With honesty

And true purpose.

In harmony

Letting peace

be my guide.

Facing all

those things

From which

I once

Ran to hide.

Now instead

I find myself

turning them into

things in which

I now believe

Confide and

also reside!

I have seen

many who

wanted theirs

to end in the

form of a fight



Even those things

they knew was wrong

Rebelling against

that which is right!

Some would even

give up their lives,

That’s how far back

Some were

prepared to go.

I say never go back!

Not to prove

that any theory

stands correct!

Say it don't

stand a chance

To come around!

The Bible, the sun.

The barrel of a gun,

Even the pages

of history.

Or sometimes

in the genesis,

Where it first


Am staying with me!

Am not leaving


No excuses!

No wins, no draw


No looses!

Whatever price

you will pay

Don’t blame me!

Because it’s you

that will be

the one

That’ll choose it!

See I have been

working good

with myself

For quite sometime

From the start

How many lifetimes

Do you believe?

What kind of blessings

Will you receive?

Some one please

Teach me

What this thing's

All about!

In the beginning,

It was correct.

Now in this

the middle,

It’s changing course.

No way of seeing


it will do later.

All you really have

is right now!

What do you think?

Hear me when I say,

This is it!


It is to you.

Be sure of what

You are doing with it.

Is undoubtedly!

The right thing to do!

Be warned!

Because life

hits back very hard!

Look through

the pages of history!

Find it, some way

Some how


All you have

Is Now!

      Thanks"AE" for reading and your lovely comment . which have easily shed that necessary light on what I call simplicity , which I personally love.

      As mankind develop in the knowledge of things , he will have no choice than to share, and even with the little he may share that's usually enough , for people mindset to change on it's own.

      Thanks for your beautiful and sincere comment.

      Thank you Brethren Frank. I think, shakes played on my brain enough during school days and make me get into many conflicts with teachers, and in English literature I had my biggest let down, arguing a statement from Shakespeare with my teacher and she had me banned from the subject in her class. I went on to receive a B+ During the exams close to the top of her class. I learn to believe in myself and later got thrown out of History and went on to a B= also so you know my head was in the clouds for the rest of my life.

      So I am from the islands , and my accent shows ou during my writing, remember my poem Big Deal. Believe in yourself and follow your truth. That same lady you are following poetvix I see the correct attitude and a great spirit. It doesn't matter what someone else says , I know what I see and feel , and I am not going to hold it I must be true to myself and speak.

      I am who I am not jealous , not selfish and I see where I am heading since many many years ago , if you are heading in that same direction you are welcome , if you are not May the Most High God bless you and I wish you well.

      But you are my brethren, and I know you too are after something , don't ask me how I know, and it's not money alone. While I am here I will encourage you on. Poetvix is correct life is what you make it, and that's why we enjoy watching the space shuttle take off and land. They will love your? what ever you choose.

      Give Thanks.

      As you continue to let your truth be your guide ,I will be one of those searching to see and feel what your truth say each and every day. Thanks You.

      The great Idea that I am always trying to convey here, is never to let things put fear into you and never let it be like you are competing against anything , because it will end up being your own self, and how will that look.

      All we would ever have is now, and most people tend to want the truth to be revealed to then in a way where there is no longer room to have anymore truths in this form.

      "As I say today is simply is simply the beginning of yesterday being relived again by you. Another given to you to make corrections, and find the answers you missed yesterday, time have allowed you a second chance, and that time involves the Most High God. So what are we going to tell our father today that we did not tell him yesterday."

      Hoping it's not the Beatles song. "Yesterday"

      Don't want to go on forever, so let me hurry up and let you know how appreciative I am of you and your continuous hearth felt comments , which always have me thinking.

      Bless Poetvix1

      Well give Thanks I will do it over in a simpler version.

      Thanks you dear jlald , and this sometimes happen, I answered, it disappeared and then it shows up again. Though 53 is not those ages where you roll over , the one thing I won't let happen easily is the evil forces rob the better areas, so I no longer get upset about things first when the happen . I actually give thanks . Once I am in charge of my life in the day I am in I change any thing that's threatening that moment into the same fuel I need to master that day.

      So one bad apple could not be allowed to spoil the whole bunch. Thanks for such a thoughtful comment

      Great to see you and God bless.

      One of the things I really like about you is that while I tend to get lost sometimes in theory and fancy terms you see through to the very heart of things which is simplicity in itself. The truth is simple. You're right. Today is all we will ever have so we better make it count. God bless you!

      Despite its pitfalls, don't let one bad love relationship ruin future possibilities. Use past experiences as a guide to careful selection.
