poeming on a unfolding theme (this moment)



still, i have to remember:

change is constant
feeling bad is momentary
feeling wonderful is momentary
feeling ashamed is momentary
feeling centered in the now lasts
only as long as the moment

still, i have to remember:

i am me and not me and not you and you
i am here and then and later, too
i am and i am not and no i but i
i cannot know what comes next
i cannot always trust what came before
i cannot always trust the emotion of the moment

still, i have to remember:

how lucky i am
how blessed i am
how complex i am
how grieving i am
how hurt i am
how loved i am

still, i have to remember:

this world is a miracle
this world is difficult
this world is ever changing
this world is amazing
this world is built on birth
this world is built on death

still, i have to remember:

every moment is this moment
every moment is only one moment
every moment is the only moment
every moment is a moment
every moment is every moment
every moment is the only moment

still, i have to remember;

this life
is
happening
in this
moment
