Past threatens

Just when the past
Threatens to tighten its melancholic binds
Precluding movement into the future
The present barges in
Demanding to be reckoned with

Por eso

Appreciate all that is and can be
Dwell not on “what ifs” and “if onlys”
For someday today will be but a memory
And tomorrow will be forever out of reach

Carpe diem. Well said Jo. You have to live for the moment..because that's what demands our attention.
