-Caught in vague phobias
of all future may present
Riddled with ambiguity
it might never represent
A fear of ensuing failure
logic gets to wear a veil
Inhibiting valid outcome
it otherwise would entail
Unless strange tried out
not known if be achieved
Nothing stays impossible
what’s earnestly believed
However much be darkest...

Why do we worry so much about tomorrow;
When we can do so much today.
Why do we cry for those who are leaving;
Forgetting the ones who stay.
Why do we long for that which we cannot have;
Without appreciating what we already possess.
We live life in a rush and often miss out so much,

Alcoholic with sick on his shoes,
Sat on a brown wooden bench
In the middle of town
With his old dog,
Lacking good vision
Waiting for a meal
A dropped pasty or pie

You could become a business man
