Choose to live your life ‘in the moment’; live for today

Can’t know the future or change the past in any way

Live without regret and embrace what’s ahead

Take no hate, anxiety, worry, or fear to your bed.

Hack’s poetry is characterized by his unique style of writing with the skilful use of language and powerful imagery and his ability to create a beautiful rhythm in his verses.
