chasing the vanishing point

there is a point in time
just out of my reach
that i find myself
chasing continually.

i seem to rush and race,
lowering my head
hunching my shoulders
in an attempt to catch it.

the point is crafty,
forever just a step ahead.
it’s elusiveness leaves
me feeling depleted.

in an attempt to capture it
i ignore the present, the
moment of my greatest power.
yet i miss the point, again & again.

life is to be lived in the
here & now.
true power is living
in the present.

today, tired of chasing
the point, i beckoned it
during meditation to
join with me.

showing the point,
once elusive and unyielding,
its new place within my
heart’sย chambers.

now i am the point
of my own life.
this may sound selfish,
yet is it incredibly empowering!

please, now
won’t you join me?
the water is
quite lovely =)

      1. Full recovery will take up to a year, but he’s doing wonderfully! His recovery is right on track and all the old, deep, awful pain is gone. What he has now is muscular recovery pain. What he has now is hope!

  1. Love this! Kay is right, not selfish at all. Can’t experience life if we are not present, I escaped reality intentionally for so long to avoid the pain but at a great cost. I’ll always be a dreamer to some degree but now I would rather be present even when it hurts. Now I know how to breathe! How to get to the light on the other side. ๐Ÿ˜Š Barn
