finding our light

this moment we call now
slips right through our hands
and even though the clock can count its precision
we experience time at different rates
sometimes both
the past and the future
steal the only time we are truly alive

in meditation we attempt to stay in the moment
thoughts come up
we let them go
soon we realize we are sitting in stillness
a lens looking in on our own life
watching the parade
we try to deny our demons
but they are still there
we try to shoo away our demons
but they come back
we can tame our demons
by being present with them
they grow smaller
as we simply sit with them and acknowledge them
they evaporate away
and we find our soul
cleansed and renewed
