I wish I had a set of
Perpendicular blinders,
A way to block the future
And focus on the present.

My mind wanders off
Into the future,
While my body lingers here
In the present.

Fear, elation or other emotions
Might await me,
But right now I feel them
Whether real or not.

I know I can’t see the future,
Only the now,
But my mind tries to look
Ahead, always.
