Theme: Time


the real now
is a giant void
or a black hole
sucking in the future
converting it into a past,
to be dreaded or glorified,
to satiate one’s own
intellectual perceptions
and beliefs

Life is effectively lived
learning, good or bad,
from the past
and either worrying
or dreaming about
the distant future

The present that
is apparently
witnessing and
remains elusive.

How does one
truly come
face to face
with now
that seems to be
a fleeting moment
yet is an eternity
in itself?

Comment 'Now' is not only eternity in itself but also mystic in it self. It is in a way above normal perception

Comment Contemporary times, and the trail of uncertainty thereof, is well described here, very poetically too!
