TODAY (Poem)

TODAY by Joe Reid Kirby III

Be content with what is here before you now,

Cease filling your mind with content,

Material things …

You are not a thing,

You are a being,

So be here …

Right here,

Right now,

Look around you …

Feel the air that surrounds you …

Soak up the energy of the sun,

Do only what you feel is fun!

Today …

Be here today …

Out of your mind,

And in your heart,

Even a child can tell the two apart …

Every waking day is a new start,

A new adventure for the mind,

A greater journey for the heart,

Exploring everything of interest that you see,

Going everywhere you feel you both want and need to be,

Operating out of equal parts of logic and love,

One with what’s before you,

Only the opinions of someone you love can detour you,

And maybe not even then …

In a pitch-black room alone you are still with a really good friend …

Your Self.
