(NaPoWriMo14 Day 22)

Today on the heels of tomorrow
Right from its birth
All through the deep dark night
Till the light of the morn

“When will tomorrow be?”
“Tomorrow never is”
We are today in pursuit of tomorrow
Chasing it all day today

I have it now, we think
Secure in the folds of our palms
Letting loose when sleep our eyes closed
At light the search begins again

Today matters most
That we fail to remember
Not yesterday, gone forever
When we die all over

Tomorrow is another
When we know not the better
Today is ours to matter
When we live again

I become today
It’s all I have
