Seizing The Instant Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

Seizing The Instant



Give up your torment,
take back your verse
tomorrow upon you
for better or worse

Take up your wishes,
give in to dreams
sleep in denial,
old memories scream

Free up the moment,
strike out the past
damning the future,
its promise unmasked

Strike up the silence,
freeing new words
seizing the instant
—forever unheard

(The New Room: May,2022)
