He no longer liked the future.
It had become an ominous place
Filled with fear and uncertainty.
He could be sure of nothing anymore.

He had no idea how it happened.
He just woke up like it one day.
He wasn’t afraid of the past.
The past couldn’t hurt him

But the future could in his mind.

One day a wee pixie landed on his shoulder.
She whispered, “Don’t be afraid
The future will never arrive.”
The wee pixie flew down onto his lap.

Her beautiful face looked up at him
And said, “Don’t look so worried & sad.”
He was so smitten that he couldn’t help but pay attention.
“We only have right now to live in,” she said.

“So live right now.”
