Carpe Diem

Salt fills the air, sand covers the ground

The crashing waves are the only sound

I am alone, but I have no fear

It’s the present moment I shall hold dear


All pain and joy from the past years

Working hard to make this moment less clear

I do not give in, I push it all aside

As I stroll the coast stride after stride


Nothing happens without a cause

I’m certainly not here just because

I don’t want or need a single thing

For it is my joy I always bring


There is nothing else I need

I must not succumb to this world of greed

I simply live in the now

Confident it will all work out somehow

This poem is about: 
Our world
