If And But Free

The time has arrived,
To leave behind...
Those treasured moments reminisced,
With the best of good intentions meant...
To do what had been desired and wished,
Left alone to forget.
Make this a promise and stick to it.

Know the 'ifs' and 'buts' of life,
Once adored to motivate actions...
Never to happen as distractions intervened,
And allowed to be replaced,
By satisfying procrastination to accomodate...
The doing of meaningless things.
To eventually from them get bored.

The time has arrived,
To settle down with a quieter mind.
And determine to find when tomorrow comes,
Being if and but free will be...
Not only a purpose to serve a duty,
To get something accomplished with it done...
To say, 'I did to do to refuse to make excuses'.
