Today I sit in peace
No Great Push telling me to
Go, go, go
Get there before it is too late
As if that were what really mattered
Essence lives on
How have I really lived?
Spinning, reaching, mind-fucking myself daily?
Or have I stopped?
Have I looked?
Have I let myself Wonder without the edgy, itchy rat-race feeling?
Have I been hell-bent on learning, on growing towards
That Damned elusive destination
Whose Reality exists only in the now?
Have I missed all the Sacred Moments and Amazing People
Right in front of me?
Have I been so eager to speak and do
That I could not hear or be?
Have I run myself in circles only to find myself
Standing in the same place?
Today I sit in peace.
I let the breeze touch my face
I hear the children laugh and shriek as children do
And I let it all be,
