Here’s a poem called “A New Leaf” by Kathleen Wheeler, whom I have no idea about but stumbled across through Boundless:
He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done. “Have you a new sheet for me, dear teacher? I’ve spoiled this one.” I took his sheet, all soiled and blotted, And gave him a new one all unspotted. And into his tired heart I cried, “Do better now, my child.”
I went to the throne with a trembling heart, the day was done. “Have you a new day for me, dear Master? I’ve spoiled this one.” He took my day, all soiled and blotted, and gave me a new one all unspotted. And into my tired heart he cried, “Do better now, my child.”

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking.
“My name is I Am”
He paused. I waited. He continued.
“When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I WAS.
“When you live in the future with its problems and fears, it is hard.
My name is not I WILL BE.
“When you live in this moment it is not hard. I am here.
My name is I AM.”
