Now is All We Have

Somewhere inside, here,
everything we’ve learned resides.
Like looking for the car keys
when they are in our other hand,
do we have to keep searching
for what we already have?

Or can we simply feel
the existence of our inner world,
know that we can trust it to live and grow—
if we just get out of the way?

Like re-booting a computer,
but instantaneous,
this re-dedication of ourselves,
this knowing that Now is all we have—
all we will ever need.
