In the Present

In the present

Slaves to time,
a concept that
quietly dictates our lives.
Getting things done
while waiting for it to pass,
so we can overcome certain feelings,
and look forward to pleasantries.

We anticipate events and outcomes;
self-induced anxiety.
We live as if time really is a linear concept
But what is time really?
How do you define it?

It’s overwhelming,
an omnipresent shadow.
If there’s one thing to know about time,
there’s only the present moment.

Possibilities;
the sunrise is a blessing.
Glittering rays kiss my face,
the possibilities of a new day;
An awakening

Thankful for this moment,
a peaceful calm only nature can offer
Soothing sounds of waves rolling onto the shore,
Set intentions
Oh, the difference each day makes

A new liberation
as the sun warms all in its wake
Arousing a joy so pure, so stimulating,
Because it comes from within;
be true to yourself and find peace,
calm the internal stirrings
