Now that I’m here

Now that I am here
Why must I worry about where I am not
Let them flow as they ought
Why worry when there is no need to worry
Hasten your walk more than you could
See with me that there is no room for a hurry
Just remain calm and be ruled

Now that I am here
No need to labour for where I am not
Man is created with some limitations
Adjust them you see you cannot
No matter how much you try
You cannot change the situation
Have it cool and think about here
This is the much you can get now
Live and work for the now and here
Lest all your Endeavours will be cowed

Now that I am here
I am bound not to consider the past
It was there and not here
Let your aspirations be here cast
The now and here is the truth
Yesterdays were but empty stories that make for today
Tomorrows are dreams that totally depend on here
So no other thing is tangible but today
Live it well
