The now.

Treat it
like this is the only
time you’ll ever see it.

Love it,
use it,
for in a millisecond
you are bound to lose it,

But it’s the only moment
you can ever have,

so pay it honor,
even if you do not choose to bow

when you do whatever with it
moves you best along here,
for, of its nature,
it’s a goner
and it’s the only time
that anyone
can use to act or ponder,
so give it all the effort and respect
that it is due.

It’s only thus
that it assumes capacity
a portion of its stash to thee
to possibly endow.

And once
you’ve done your part
to use it well,
you’re bound to see
how good a thing
that truly simply
has to be
to do.
