IT IS ONLY NOW

It is only now that matters,
For only now am I alive,
‘Tis now that real truth shatters,
The inner will and drive.
Dreams are silly thoughts,
And yesterdays are gone,
What good were hope’s resorts,
Now vanished every one.
It’s all about pretending,
Lying to one’s self,
On myth and fib depending,
While time destroys one’s health.
Gloom and doom descending
While cometh death by stealth.
