You can't even imagine how much and how deep it holds
Multitudes of instances of presence that you lack in this presence
Like a ring on your finger that disappears after being worn lies its essence
You forgot about it and got lost in its many folds
This second is so rich you are not bold enough to admit
Being aware of its depth you are out of your element to witness
As if seeing will make you see the marvel in its kindness
Of beauty unimagined, hidden in plain sight yet so hard to commit
To the plain simple, and darn difficult-to-perceive truth
That thirty or fifty years are nothing but an instance
In this second, they appear in the distance
Yet, in truth, they lie with you every night as a fairy tale coming for a tooth
The story is not a matter of exchange of monetary value for your time
Since the beginning, it was never but a tale
Governing your life, whipping it in endless gusts of gale
You thought you had control of and all, until it fell apart in a dime
Oh, this second is so rich
Give it a moment to be your core
As it deserves to be and forever more
For it is not a dream but a reality if you wish
