It Is We Who Are Now - Poem by Shalom Freedman


It is we who are we now
Us in this world as we are now
Which truly matters.

The rest
The billions of years of what will be
Or what was.
All the rest
The billions and billions of people
And minds and nights and galaxies also
All that otherness we will never know
It doesn’t matter.

We as we are in our own lifetimes
With those we love
This is what matters
Only this
Our life our loves
The time we have
Before we won’t have any.
