Today is my birthday!!! I’m sosososososo excited I can’t tell you. 😀 But it also got me thinking–when I decided to write today’s poem early so I wouldn’t forget!–about expectations and how some people deal with them. This poem is my own personal response to the questions that started jumping up in my mind.
No more waiting
Today is THE day
The day you’ve been counting down
And you stayed up until midnight
Just to say
Today is TODAY
What do you do
Now that the wait
Do you start the next countdown
To the next milestone
Or do you revel in today
And leave yourself hanging tomorrow?
My friends, I chose to
For it will not come again
And the feeling it brings
Is unique in your
Mind, soul and heart
And no matter what the other countdown is for
It will never be for TODAY
I’ll deal with tomorrow tomorrow
For I have no doubt
It will bring its own surprises
And I’ll great it with a smile
But today is today
And this is my moment
And I will live it
