I have forgotten

DSCF1471

I have forgotten

what it feels like to have a busy mind,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to never have space in between thoughts,

I have forgotten

how I couldn’t look at things without judging them,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to hear words in my head without pause,

I have forgotten

how I used to be still without any stillness,

I have forgotten

the fear of thinking I could be crazy,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the anxiety of the future,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the memories of the past,

I have forgotten

how I just didn’t know how to live the present.

Now I remember,

And I look around me to all these faces who are still asleep

and oh, I wish I could wake them up

show them the beauty of life

teach them how to stop their minds

and make them feel the peace of Now.

I have forgotten

but I will not forget

to help everyone remember

who they really are.

  1. That is lovely!! I think you mean to write “lose” and not “loose” in a couple spots?
