Just Now #AToZChallenge

Finding me under a huge load, Life asked,
"When will you complete your lists & tasks?"
"Tomorrow or the day after, or the weekend,
If only some extra time, time would lend!"

When I answered this, in a jiffy Time appeared!
"Are you out of your mind or joking?" Time jeered!
"I gift the same number of seconds to everyone!
It's upto you whether you work hard or have fun.

And then you complain to life about time scarcity!"
I felt guilty hearing Time blurt out the bitter reality.
The unfinished tasks & plans I seriously jotted down
The power of 'just now' just then removed my frown.

Just now is the time in my hands that I get to spend!
Just now is the time when I can bend/break or mend!
Just now is the time to at least start what's incomplete!
Just now is my joy & my gift that I'm ready to greet! :)

Do you realize the power of "just now" ? What do you have to do "just now" ?
