Today

What if today is as good
As I will ever receive?
If this is the exact mood,
Where I will not be deceived?

Would I instantly regret,
What had occurred?
Would I want to forget?
Or would I want it mirrored?

If from the stars above,
I am not satisfied,
What is there to love?
If I am not mollified?

When I recollect,
Is this my satisfactory appearance?
And when I reflect,
I don’t want just a glance.

I want to stare,
At the life I create
I want to care,
And not just graduate.

If today is my best,
Then everything is uphill
It will not be my last
I have my will.
