Live in present moment
This moment , this present moment
So transitory, so impermanent
Gone even before I blink my eyes!
Yet I keep oscillating between past and future
Like a pendulum, not stopping for a second.
Little do I realize that this moment is all I have,
This present moment to be happy!
Not in the past glories nor amidst the future worries,
This moment, this very moment
Gone with the snap of my fingers!
Yet I keep looking here and there
Like a deer wandering in search of musk
Being oblivious of the joy inside me
Waiting to sprout and shine.
Whether happy or blue, accept and embrace
This moment, this inevitable moment
Gone forever and just a memory of the past!
Wake up and see, my dear
This moment, this present moment is all you’ve got
No past , no future but this moment
To be happy, to be in bliss, to rise and shine!
