In This moment

I am 59 and I have lived
I have learned to not take but truly truly give
I am not thinking of tomorrow or dwelling of some sorry
but thinking of this world and that I am living in it
I am embracing everything living in the minute.
now our world has changed fear brings out the good the bad the mean, we have saw our world change so since Covid came on the scene, I have had friends and family suffer and die, feeling lost , anxious with tears in my eyes.
I pulled my self up , I know this thing is here, but I will live by faith and not get caught in fear,
so I am here, mama is too, were living in this time
experience this virus new, but not thinking ahead dwelling in sorrow, not living in fear with thoughts of tomorrow, I'm here you are too lets live in the moment thats what I do, I focus on things I can do something about, I put my faith in one on high, I won't tremble or doubt
