My attempt at a “sestina”

Think about your Purpose

Forget about the Past

Be here in the Present

Look forward to the Future

Rejoice in your Age

Time is in Us.
Time is in You.

You’ve earned your Age

The Future is your dreams

In the Present we struggle

To erase Past mistakes

Our Purpose is to love.
What Purpose do you have, Mother?

We are your Past

your Present

and your Future.

Do you feel the accomplishments of your Age?

Time lives inside of Us.
Time lives inside of You.

What is our Age

but a Future ahead?

At Present we stand

Looking at the Past

Think about your Purpose, Mother.
For the Purpose of this poem,

Remember: the Present is given to you.

The Future is your dreams.
