A Moment In Time

A Moment in Time

All that really exists is the moment
There is no need for the past to ever torment

The past is the past
It will not and cannot last

Being present to the present
Ceases all reason for morose lament

Times idles and freezes to the second
The mind's crafty teasers lure and beckon

Anxiety is the stealth robber's secret
That knows no bounds or egress

It is the "is" of the present tense
Living with each breath abets sense

Time is fleeting sand in the hourglass
Impossible to not make it pass

The moment can never be thrown away or cast
Impervious, futile catching time as it speeds so fast

The past only remains a prequel
With each moment there is no sequel

The moment vanishes regret
There is no furtive agenda to fret

The plaudits are held in cursory reality
There is no rehearsal or duality

The future and past become banal and fraught
The present moment is the lesson to be taught

It is only the now to be here
Because the specter, Death is always lurking near

It is where God always meets us in the end
The great Vertical is who into time descends

So come live in the moment and be with Me
This is the only place where we live, breath, and see

A moment in time holds the past, present, and future in one
It is what determines the person we become


--Rhonda Milner

"Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you.

 Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure."  

Psalm 39:4-5
