for Octpowrimo 19, where the prompt is “seize the day”.
It’s no use looking forward -
tomorrow never comes.
Worse is looking backward with regret.
Seize the day, they tell us,
is what we have to do:
enjoy the moment to the full,
now, and do not fret
for what could be or might have been;
you say, “tomorrow may be better,”
but you will never know
for tomorrow never comes.
