#21. LIFE! A series of moments.
Day 5. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!
Until you know, you do not know
You can only do that which you do know
So open up to the world all around you
And keep looking until you find the answers
The answers are buried within you
If you dare to look past the walls and tear yourself
Away from the self-imposed prison around your soul
Clear the cobwebs and the fog of fear, arise from the pitiless hole
The hell of today becomes paradise with a single step
So take action, just a single step forward into this vision
Drink this moment in. For all of life is a series of magical moments.
It is not the events themselves that matter, you see
It is your attitude more than anything that’s key.
So act on what you know now, and give it everything you’ve got
There’s power in focus, action and positive thought
Your transformation is not a sudden big bang,
And it is not an instant genius stroke from a magic wand,
Rather, it is simply a journey each day re-started
A gradual, sometimes painful, not-so-graceful, long walk on a path uncharted.
And above it all, I must confess, it is the most beautiful process
With each step you behold the light within as it beams
And become more of the being you were created to be.
You are an original with different gifts that you must plant as seeds
For there’s something unique inside you that the world needs.
In this moment, pause, take a life-breath and embrace your purpose
Yes, indeed, life is merely a series of NOWs.
All of life is indeed a series of moments.
Your purpose is to live every moment
And make sure that each moment counts!
