The present….

In the midst 

of a bygone past 

and an uncertain future.

I stand at the threshold of the present

absorbing the beauty of life,

enjoying every moment of it.

What will ensue seems very trivial

to the defiant self,

As it wraps itself

in the ethereal pleasure of the present.

The susceptible heart

sympathizes with me,

For it knows well,

That like the setting sun,

these transient moments,

will slowly slip away into darkness,

into another past,

leaving me in absolute solitude.

But yet, the uncompromising self

adores these moments,

It does not wish to part with it,

For it seems to have accepted

the naked truth of life.
