25 Tomorrow, Yesterday, Today

Pondering It is human to want to hold on to things and people, to keep to us that which we determine precious. However, it is in our quest, to hold tight and keep exclusively to ourselves those things and people we most value and hold dear that we unwittingly imprison ourselves, burden our bodies and shackle our minds due to the self-imposed restrictions we adhere to because we feel it is required to maintain said things. It is an unfortunate choice of being because it limits our growth as human beings and suffocates those whose desire to remain close is witted away and overtaken by their need to escape the restricting confines imposed upon them.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we learnt a little from nature’s continuous patterns of forward movement, of simply doing and being? Imagine being able to capture just a fragment of that to weave into our life's philosophy, it would free us from the confines that atrophy our evolution. Sometimes in our zests to be validated, to know, understand and establish our significance in the world we get in our own way and muddy our own path as we try to capture the illusiveness of things and people in the Tomorrows, Yesterdays and Todays comprehending yet refusing to acknowledge that nothing is permanent, that tomorrow never comes, yesterday is never here and today never stays.

Tomorrow, Yesterday, Today

Tomorrow never comes
Yesterday is never here
Today never stays
It gives way to tomorrow that never comes
Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Mystifyingly infinite
Always changing, exchanging,
Arranging, rearranging for...
A Tomorrow that never comes
A Today that never stays
A Yesterday that is never here
That pushes its way into
Tomorrow that never comes
Situating itself into
Today that never stays
Only to change into
Yesterday that is never here
Seeping hope for a
Tomorrow that never comes

    1. indeed sometimes we get so lost in the yesterdays and to worrying about the tomorrows that we fail to live in the today and appreciate the blessings within.

  2. "...comprehending yet refusing to acknowledge that nothing is permanent, that tomorrow never comes, yesterday is never here and today never stays."

    This is so deep, and you've just given me food for thought. I've never actually thought of it this way, but it makes a lot of sense. Reminds of the word from the bible, "sufficient unto the day..."

    Great poem indeed, and thanks for sharing.

  4. I am a firm believer in living life, that there is a huge difference between living and simply existing. There are many reasons to live in the moment. For me living life in the present is part of living life to the fullest. The two aren't exact synonyms, but they are closely related. You can't live life to the fullest if you don't even know how to slow down and live in the moment. I think there would be less stress if all were in the moment. The focus is not on future or past tense. Most live ahead of the moment and worry, living in the past is usually hanging on to bitter roots, if you think about it. What could of been, and so on. Why else go there unless you open the door to share an experience with someone to help them or to remind yourself of a lesson learned.

    "Enjoy life. This is not a dress rehearsal." - an excellent quote.

  9. Hi,

    Great thoughts wonderfully expressed. Yesterday is a canceled cheque, tomorrow is a promissory note and today is cash. Spend the cash and enjoy.

  12. I know that I should not hold on to it, but I'm still holding on to the love of life. We broke up two and half years ago and I still wake up with her on my mind from time to time... This part of me I am still battling to understand... Human nature is an incredible thing...

    1. hmmmmm......let go and let God, it is not easy, in that way we are similar, I have learnt though to let go, be thankful for the love and the lessons that came as a result of the lived experience and I've learnt to forgive myself my humanness that contributed to the breakdown and disintegration of the relationship for its not one person's fault.

      The biggest lesson though came when i understood that one cannot hold on to someone that wishes not to be held, that by holding on too tight amounts to self-punishment and self-negation.

      It's easy to get stuck and getting stuck has much to do with the SELF than the other person because 9,5 times out of 10 they have moved on and living life without apologies or thought of what was.
