Poem: Living in the Moment – 29/09/21

To truly live in the moment,
to take stock and simply breathe,
enrich yourself in the present,
feeling, being, see,
understanding that being in the current,
the here and now,
to appreciate,
that which is all around us,
enough to encapsulate ourselves as of late.
Knowing ourselves more and more
which comes with time and growing sense of selves,
being able to search our experiences and
know what to seek out,
to be happy with our discoveries,
and not need to further delve,
to be accomplished in our journeys,
the ability to breathe within and exhale,
to rid ourselves of stress and pain,
relieving, an inner peace,
something which will one day come with ease,
time will surely tell.

  1. I love this piece, my dearest Lauren. Wise, self-aware, and beautifully written. I also love that you incorporated time in the poem; as it does take time; yet the paradox is that the time is now…then, now…like that. Beautifully expressed, my dear friend. ❤❤
