My thanks go to fellow blogger Ali Grimshaw and her writing circle, for creating the space for community and inspiration to write poetry.

Now is the only time that matters

Say goodbye to what is gone
No matter its importance then
Now is a new beginning.

We get attached to our words,
to-do lists, the shoulds and woulds
that we tell ourselves.

They keep us tied to the past
Fill us with regret and doubt
for the next step forward.

Now is the only time that matters
