Then and Now (or Now and Then)


One day,
when I was younger
I am now,

And I
Was looking forward
to when I would be older
than I was then

I thought that
Today (insert actual today’s date here)
Would be the day
That I
was looking forward to

But, looking back
At myself looking forward
I didn’t know
that ‘that’ then
And this ‘now’
Would be as it was
And is
And that I
Would still be blue.



  1. This is so beautiful honest – I connect to the rawness of the angst and melancholy that I got out of this and stayed connected to the gentle way you delivered your words and feelings. This is a keeper. Thanks for the nice moment I had today because of you! Peace, Harlon
