The Best You Got, a pantoum


day 8… NaPoWriMo

Right NOW

You gotta figure the best you got is right now

What’s done is done, what is to come is only your story

Might as well make that story good while you’re at it

Our Egos hate to live without answers

~

What’s done is done, what is to come is only your story

Energy gets wasted on time spent making shit up

Our Egos hate to live without answers

The mind will stay busy making chaos when you let it

~

Energy gets wasted on time spent making shit up

Letting the negative win feeds that clawing tale

The mind will stay busy making chaos when you let it

What the hell do you know anyway about tomorrow?

~

Letting the negative win feeds that clawing tale

You’re the only one letting that drama unfold

What the hell do you know anyway about tomorrow?

And what makes the past your motivator for today?

~

You’re the only one letting that drama unfold

Find the gratitudes, the Loves, the feel good

And what makes the past your motivator for today?

Time doesn’t have any significance in the Be Here Now

~

Find the gratitudes, the Loves, the feel good

Might as well make that story good while you’re at it

Time doesn’t have any significance in the Be Her Now

You gotta figure the best you got is right Now
