Past and future prevent me from experiencing the joy that is in me in this moment.


Holding to past,
as if it were present.
Fearful of future,
and coming resentment.
Controlling from past
and limiting now,
prevents me from being
this moment, somehow.
I want presence peace.
Yet out of my grasp,
I've seen it fleeting,
Come back to me now.
In all present moment,
don’t leave me weeping.
Release the joy,
I know is within me.
Not for a moment,
but for all my life keeping.
