Never a day like today to be who you are
Never a day like today to wrestle reality
from the jaws of illusion–that place we must live
until all illusions are outlived
Today is all we have
Never anything more will we have, even when
we think there is more, and
even when no end of less is in sight
Find today wherever you are
Hug it, hold it, as long as you can
For surely it will give way
to another day, another start and finish
Find yourself before you disappear
into something other than you are
Discover who you’re not, before
who you are ends forever
No matter what
Give today all you have
