If not now … when?

Isn’t there always something?
A milestone to be reached
a deadline to be met
a promotion to be had
another rung to be climbed.

A marriage, a birth
A house
Obligations, commitments
Worldly aspirations
Goals, roadmaps

Isn’t there always something?
An exam to prepare for
a car bought or sold
an itch satisfied
a mirage — the end of the road.

It never ends
The rat race
Or the family ties

Who you are
what you do
where you go
is determined
not by things
or those around you.

The beginning
is now
The future
is here
Take the plunge
For if not
here and now…
