Searching for now

Mindfulness living

Or Living in the Now

Have become popular phrases

A seemingly simple undertaking

Complex in proper execution

We are told to put all

Past or future thoughts

Out of our mind

And embrace this moment

As it’s all we really have

But even in meditation

Holding onto now is difficult

Let alone trying to do it

During a work day

Rapid fire thoughts

Bombard the mind

Making now

Really hard to find

They say with practice

A peaceful quiet mind

Can be attained

Maybe, but right now

My attempts to find it

Feel more like a strain

E.A. Fussell
