365 Todays

I stand like stone

Mute

Paralyzed

Crippled with fear

Like emotional polio

Motionless

Voiceless

 

Am I so fragile?

A crystalline soul

Liable to collapse into a thousand splintered fragments?

Shards of glass

Where my heart once was?

Where my ego once stood?

 

But I break my own heart everyday

Always saving the sweetest lies

To tell myself

“Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow” I say

Knowing all the while

Where fear says “tomorrow”

Strength says…

 

Today

Today is all there is

This day

Is the only day

Tomorrow

Will always be just out of reach

But now-

Now is eternal

Look at the calendar and realize

It shows no tomorrows,

But 365

Todays
