I LIVE IN THE PRESENT

by Ehi Mary Okwechime

 

I have a dream

Its thought lightens my heart

Waking each day to its fulfillment

Brings joy without bounds.

 

The hand of fate twisted my plans

But quitters never succeed

I held on.

 

Fate brought me to Excellence

The life time of Jesus

Gave a second view

The Transit made it clear.

 

Reminded to pen down

The dream in telescope

Now, I wake each day

Just to live

The escapist way attractive

The dream was only a dream

 

 

 

 

Once!

There was a perfect future

Now future is what will be seen

Dream washed away by waves.

 

One asked, are you afraid

Of the future? No!

Am afraid of the present

Because, it brings the future.

 

I live in the present

I am scared to death.
