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.
