What Moment?

Updated on July 10, 2012

Always thinking
Always remembering
Always hoping
In that instant
Of living
The distraction of the past
And of the future
Is the moment that never lasts

Always traveling
Always moving
Always leaving
In that instant
Of motion
The distraction of the journey
And of the departure
Is the arrival of uncertainty

Always restless
Always searching
Always longing
In that instant
Of thought
The distraction of the impulse
And of the mistake
Is the wait for something else
