wake up
in the here and now
safe and sound

sleep tight
with dreams of things past
not so safe not so sound

live life
in the here and now
sometimes in the past

learn from the
here and now,
and live

live in the
here and now
with others

here and now

MJ,

that's a good perspective. I know many good people in the here and now, as opposed to back then.

Michael,

Your poem reminds me of something Mike Church has said many times, and it helped me a lot: "Now and the future are where we have to spend the rest of our lives".

Much love,
Larry

Michael,

The changes you have gone through since last summer are astonishing aren't they bro? A lot of hard work! It's so great to see one of our brothers really turn things around.

Much love,
Larry

I was kept locked in a house while this was written

I am now out of there and happier than ever

being locked up kept me from living a free life

and if someone has to keep you locked in a house

what kinda friend are they? Now we do not lock the house

and when someone says they love me they mean it.
