A Million Nows

Now’s all we’ve got 

So stop thinking about the other day and someday

Or your mind will rot

In a fetid, decaying pot

Nothing is ever really just as it seems

Don’t let your short life unravel at the seams

Hold yourself together with sheer will and spit if you have to

Whatever you do, hold the fuck on!

It’s never, ever an easy ride

It was never meant to be, ya know?

Take a picture of this now

It’ll serve as your memory in the afterlife 

Make it your absolute best damned shot

Your aim ought to be to leave here in better shape than when you first came

This is the NOW life

For fuck’s sake, live it NOW!

Your afterlife comes once you’ve mastered your million nows.
