The Quest For Now
Author: Pondering Red


where is the balance of the paradox of opposites?
where do they meet after they have a life of their own?

when does niceness change to bitter words after
familiarity falls over the edge?
when does time dissect a potential love of two souls
experiencing happiness and fun in the now?

how do i sit and be still with a heart exploding out of my chest?
how does the energy of a flowing river penetrate my state of mind
and renew my raging stillness?

what can i do to do nothing to make you come nearer to my heart?
what can i say to make my silence resonate my experience and being to your world?

when will the moment of meditating nothing become the same moment and more?
when does my projected chanting and yearning flow smoothly and freely to your door?

when will my past exuberance draw nearer to my now knowledge and present me with a wild peace?

who will i be when all my self awarenesses merge and breathe in unison?
