I am free to be myself

It seems to me
that I can float in, float out
disappear, re-appear,
take a vacation, or go to work
as I please
whether or not I am any small part of
anyone’s future or past

my days are my own!

if I disappear or don’t disappear
it doesn’t matter!!
nobody but myself
nothing but my own humming thought!

apparently, there's no past or future
those ideas aren't real
only today is real
so, why do humans view today only in
relation to yesterday?

can’t I just live today as my own day?
why does it have to be seen only as the continuation of some day that passed?
I don’t want to be attached to yesterday’s failure!

today is mine to do with as I please
If I feel like smiling, I can
if I feel like hiding, I can
if I decide to go for a walk,
I can!

    Part Two

    And yet, to read this written out, it feels very negative.

    It feels like the opposite of Love. Does love require one to care about others? To be considerate? To think about how one’s actions impact others?

    I feel that’s true. The opposite of love is NOT to care, to be self-centered and separate. To feel love is to feel connected and that then means that you have to be concerned about yesterday, today, and tomorrow as some kind of continuous thread!

    Which is not to say, that one can’t wake up to a new day with possibilities.

    Love getting to read your works, Justam!

    The first rule of the ten club fight club is you don't talk about the ten club fight club!
