Your Moment

A Period of Time

This is a period of time

Where only this is happening and you can't escape

Where a moment comes and goes and you are presently in it

Where now is special yet ever-changing

And yesterday or tomorrow are at a far distance

Almost irrelevant

Because now is the reality you could bear to see

If I could have seen my now a year ago I would be in awe

If you were to tell me about my now before today I would think it was a fantasy

But now I can actually see

Passed the veil that was blinding me

Stopping my dream from happening

The thief of my present moments robbed me

A robbery I could never get back

A frame of time I couldn't claim again

I lost my past, future, and the precious present.

This is your period of time.


Take it.
