I’m Here

I’m here
therefore I am

if I wasn’t
I wouldn’t be

but that is
neither here
nor there

but what is here
and what is there?

here is the present
there is the past

the past is where
the present has gone

before

the goal is
to make
something,
anything
of the present

while it is here

before it becomes
the past

before
it goes there

the present
can be changed

the past cannot

wasted time
becomes
missed
opportunities

initiating
the circle of
depression

circling into
and onto itself
until hope is lost

I awoke today
to find
the present has gone

again

into the past

erasing goals

nullifying tasks
to be done
into what
was not

leaving only
regrets

again

this is me
I can’t change

thinking
dwelling
makes it worse

I shouldn’t
but I do

maybe tomorrow
I will remember
before
it is too late
