right now,


i stand, my feet firmly


placed in the present

right now,


my words are profound,


and my writing


could guide the ones who come later


maybe, even, myself

right now,


my life is entwined


with so many others


and history's seen


as a meaningful path


defining humanity's striving





all bets are off…
