How blissful it is

to be fearlessly immersed

in moments that you enjoy

whether alone or

with that trusted someone

where you don't have to pretend

and can spend hours on end

doing the simple things

that you love.


For you are bound to nothing

but your conscience

which will make you feel guilty

about not enjoying the little pleasures

and seizing opportunities

that life is offering you right now.


You can choose to hush the rush

and savour the taste

of being united with the present

where you are connected

with all that is

and not worry about

unpromised tomorrows.

A good poem capturing a common reflection of going into a new year.
