Living in the Now: A Poem titled “Grammar”

Following poem entitled “Grammar” on how to live life for your reading pleasure:

Live in the active voice, rather than the passive.
Think more about what you happen than what is
happening to you.

Live in the indicative mood, rather than in the subjunctive.
Be concerned with things as they are, rather than as they
might be

Live in the present tense, facing the duty at hand
without regret of the past or worry over the future.

Live in the singular number, caring more for the
approval of your conscience
than for the applause of the crowd.

{William De Witt Hyde}
