Are you in the Present?

white how now are you? neon light

The mind travels without an agenda

awakening the memories of the past, from its slumber,

hijacking our today,

 into the unknown fears of the future.

 Oscillating between the two ends of the spectrum

our “now” sacrificed at the altar of this tussle.

The key is just a simple choice we make

from the millions of moments that weave our life

lease not, your present, to yesterdays and tomorrows

for they are tenants who only add heartaches and anxieties.

In this transient world, all that matters is “Now”,

for the living in the present is the best gift to self!

Choice!

Each grain of sand

gently cascades down

at its own pace,

as minutes to hours to years pass.

Since eons, till eternity

in the infinite realms of universe,

for reasons known or unknown

life happens,

without a rhyme or rhythm.

Between

 the many sunrise and sunsets

 the dark and light

 the regrets and letting go

the improvidence and foresight

the scars and smiles

the heartbreak and love

a transformation or regression

a rise or fall,

the boundless space is consumed by

 clash of emotional encumbrance,

till realisation dawns

that between yesterday and tomorrow

the only time to be alive is today,

to make a choice

to be in the “Now”,

to free the soul,

before the last grain in the

hourglass of life

drops down

to be lost in the vast dimensions

of the sands of time.

Random Musings – कल Vs Tomorrow

Alive, Awake, Aware, Hands, Embrace, Holding, Being

आज, कल की यादों से लड़ रही थी मैं,
आने वाले कल की परेशानियों को भी ,आज जी रही थी
कल और कल के इस कश्मकश में,
मै आज को जीना ही भूल गयी .

Today, I fought with yesterday’s memories ,

and am living tomorrow’s worries also.

In the tussle between yesterday and tomorrow,

I forgot to live today.
