I’m Done (Friday Poem)

I’m done with the past
It’s a land I can’t visit
Memories are a double edged sword
The joys I’ve shared that I miss
The horrible things I lived through

I’m done with the future
All its hopes and dreams
The illusory nature of what could be
The fear of things not going my way
Or putting off joy till another day

I’m living now and I will face
All the obstacles around me
One by one I will beat them all
And I promise myself
To enjoy and trust the process

I am alive now, my heart is beating
I have love, I have friendship
People who touch my soul
In the here and now

I’m done!
