"The serendipity of surprise"

Now is Enough

Let them run till they run out of breath
They will never outrun death

Take this to heart while your heart is beating
You who know but have to try
The way I knew but had to try when
I was now back when now was then

I think this is what they mean when they say
Time is fleeting and to seize the day
But in a universe of now
Chasing it seems to make it worse somehow

Does it go slower when they go
Faster even though they know
Nowhere knows no fast nor slow
As they hurry to get there anyway?

I no longer hurry because
I learned the hard way to understand
Between what I learned and what I was taught
Between what I gave and what I got

Between what will be and what was
Yesterday's tomorrow and
Its image in the mirror as
Tomorrow's yesterday

This is the day to worry about

And less a worry more a doubt
Of other days but what
I think it means is that I mean I
Thought it would be like I thought it should be

And was it? It was not

However it was it is no more
Only the is of now
Is what to be and how to be for
The real to realize

And looking neither back nor ahead
Seeing now is how to find
What is by being now instead
Of going blind before and behind

Sometimes a window and sometimes a door
Never why but always how
The serendipity of surprise
Is how as now opens my eyes

If they want to chase the future let them
Now remembers to forget them
Now is eternity
Between what was and what will be

Now is enough for me
