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
