I've been told to stop living in the future
and to concentrate on today,
but I cannot bring myself to live like that
when the present goes away.
Of course, I can see the point made
that life is just too short
to make and live by indefinite plans
which the shifts of time will thwart.
So, I've settled on some middle ground
and made a five year plan
where my targets are achievable
and I can finally become a man.
