There is no happy ending

No saviour to come and rescue us

There is no age where it all becomes clear,

When the cobwebs are lifted from our eyes and we’re filled with empathy and wisdom

There is only now

No perfect partner

No perfect day

No perfect anything

There’s only now

No someday I’ll buy that car

No someday I’ll quit smoking

No someday I’ll stop drinking

No someday I’ll start being a better person

No someday we’ll be all good somehow

There’s only now

Right here and now

No drug to ease all the pain

No guarantees

No no no no

Maybe it’s a good thing
