Holding Time Still

Holding time still, 
It is not possible I know; 
Freedom from time
Is impossible to get, I am aware; 
Taming time or its passage
Are next to impossible for me; 
Still I long for transcending time
To free myself from aches, pains, hurts, 
Worries, fears, anxieties, apprehensions; 
Thoughts make me worried, anxious
Frightened, apprehensive and painful, and rarely pleasant; 
I wish to be free from all these, 
The past and the future, 
the memory and apprehension; 
the two phases of Time; 
That cause inconvenience to me
And torture me occasionally.
But unless I transcend
The functioning of my mind and be a mere seer
I cannot hold time still
And attain freedom to be still; 
How I wish for peace, 
Bliss and silence; 
To dawn and dwell in me! 
To hold time still
By, me becoming one with
The Divinity, the Self
Freeing myself
From vicissitudes and vagaries of time-conscious mind
Making my mind still and tranquil; 
I long to hold time still and be tranquil
Till my breath stops and body becomes still
How I wish for peace, bliss and silence, 
When my unreal “I” merges in such serene essence; 
Then seconds may become minutes; 
Minutes hours and hours, days; 
Days months, months years, and decades, 
Centuries, millennium; 
I always remain a flow of tranquility
How I wish to hold time still
And be free from time
In serene times
When my mind merges in its source, the Self!
