Some People Enjoy Their Burdens Kept


Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Keeps...
Facts intact.
Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Eliminates...
The need to guess.
Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Keeps...
Facts intact.
And keeping it 'real',
Gets that 'monkey' off one's back!

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Keeps...
Facts intact.
Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Eliminates...
The need to guess.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Keeps...
Facts intact.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Being in the presence of the 'NOW',
Eliminates...
The need to guess.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Some people enjoy,
Their monkeys!
Some people enjoy,
Their burdens kept.

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
