Today

The power of ticking clock is immense. It makes me realize the importance of Today. 
Every moving second cuts into my Today. 
Every breath exhaled reduces my Today. 
Today is the slipping grain of sand that I want to hold on but can’t. 
Today is what happened when I was contemplating yesterday.
Today is what passed by when I fantasized of the future.
Today is something I won’t have again.
Today is just Today not yesterday not tomorrow.
Today is to be cherished.
Today is to be useful.
Today is to be lived.
For now, I want to be all I can Today.
