this moment passes...
by David B. King (2008)


This moment passes
And in this moment truth
Falls to past
Nothing to last
Into tomorrow or the next
With no one cast 
But those who break it
Or know to take it
Into the moment
And make it last
Into this moment
And the next 
And the next
And the next
And soon they blend
Present, Future, Past
Moments lined up
Moments bound up
In mind they last
They CAN last
So that this is it
So that this is all that breathes
So that this is the only truth in life
So that this makes you or breaks you or leaves you in the past
With all the messed up minds still waiting for tomorrow
And still, this moment passes

Can you hold onto it?
Can you find truth?
Or will you let it slip away?
