time goes by

While you are awake
Stay awake and don’t drift into dreams
Don’t sway here and there
but let your thoughts flow and go.

The past is nothing but a dream
Written on an uneven slate of sand
To be washed away by the moving tides
Forgotten or layered in piles.

The future is yet to become
A mold out of the clay
but it is never certain
of what the mold will become.

Focus on the wonderful now
and watch time go in slow motion
there's bigger purpose to life than this
let it unfold in the present.

Be aware

Be aware,
Just be,
Peace lies there,
Do it and see.

Jealousy and envy,
shades of madness,
Both within you,
And so is happiness.

The mind stays best,
Absorbed in the moment,
No flitting thoughts,
The acid test.

The tea in your cup,
Is aroma not storm,
Inhale the beauty,
Admire the form.

Sleep when you sleep,
The slumber of the just,
A promise you need to keep,
And that you must.

Let the day go by,
Neither fast nor slow,
Let time fly,
Just go with the flow.

One thing at a time ,
Is a cliche well-worn,
Stay in the present,
Your tranquility unshorn
