Poems

The Time Barrier

My chest is heavy

my breathing shallow

an uneasy restlessness

wells right up

to my head.

 

I know that I am afraid of

merely skimming

the surface

and doing nothing.

 

I fear dear friends

that I am anxious

about being anxious.

How to stop, how to stop

there is no time

to just be.

 

Time is of the essence;

time which  is measured

by change;

and change cannot

be stopped.

 

Even were I to sit still

to cease

my body changes yet

as cells are constantly born

and die.

 

If there to be but only

present

neither future, nor past

time would be defeated.

 

I sit back and observe

every moment

as it is

stand-alone

 

And I see that every

drop of my being

is now in the present.

I have entered

the eternal present.
