Now Is All There Is

Post by koan »

Wasted moments in the hazy past

The things I should have said

Time races by fleeting and fast

Only memories in my head.

I catch myself making a wish

To change what has transpired

The present is all that lives in me

What's gone must be retired.

For every moment that I breathe

Is a chance to make a change

To set aright all my mistakes

And plan to rearrange.

So if I choose to turn my back

On fear, on pain and rage

I choose to move into the light

And leave behind my cage.

As life is not an endless string of

Pleasantries and tea

All I can do is hold my ground

And always stay true to me.

Thanks. The last verse took me longer than usual on this one.

Scratch up another one for you. Another beautiful poem. It is wonderful. Beautiful last verse. Worth the effort with its inherent beauty of being you.
