Now


Why are you racing towards tomorrow
It will be gone when you get there
And even if you catch it
It's never what you imagined
It transforms from future to now

We're all living in the now
Yesterday is past
Tomorrow is beyond
And now is the place where we are

What you're feeling is now
What you're thinking is now
What you're touching is now
Your heart is beating now

Now is life
Now can be prosperity, health, wisdom
And love
All the things that make life worth living
Take the time
To make now
Yours forever
