Sufficient for today.


Living for the future or living for now

Everyone seems to be lost in tomorrow and

Today  is already in the abyss

Looks like the worth of a man

Is tied to the plan of the morrow

Whatever happened to today

So much anxiousness in the heart of men

Because the freedom of today has been

Handed over to tomorrow

The feeling of uncertainty

Is what makes life exciting and mysterious

Filled with adventure

How do you experience life in its fullness

Except knowing that nothing is guaranteed.

I hear you say tomorrow is not promised

So why bother about what you don’t know.

Sufficient for today

Is the trouble thereof.

Our fear of the future is a refusal to accept “now”as the only moment given.
