Before It’s Too Late

Joyful Moment

You can’t change things that happened a long time ago.
Don’t be bitter with yourself about what you’ve done
That showed your disconnection from reality
In the distant past. Right now is where you should be.
In this moment the rest of your life is begun.
There’s still some time left for your consciousness to grow.

Happiness isn’t the absence of problems. It’s
The ability to deal with them. Challenges
Aren’t to be backed down from as they offer the best
Lessons in life. You’re not being put through a test
So ignore most completely what anyone says
To the contrary. Live what your knowing permits.

Discuss your past with no one because only you
Know the true story and any significance
It may have to the present. They just may use it
Against you. Generally others are unfit
To hear that information. Don’t give them the chance
To create their own drama and skewed point of view.

Life changes for the better when you realize
That you don’t have to know everything and you don’t
Have to pretend that you do. If you can become
And eagle then don’t strive to be first among some
Flock of jackdaws. Decide in you mind that you won’t
Let the past be what causes your early demise.
