A Long Thought

* As long as there is thought, there can never be a present.*

Say farewell to the days, as they go by,
for they are never one
and the same.

Each day brings forth
a changed sun,
a new sun,
and each night
brings the same
moon against an aging wall of broken stars.

Why bother to understand
what you already know,
the sun always shines
and moon,
a deformed rock reflecting the sun,
always reflects.

Why give thought to
the sun and the moon,
both sources of light,
always sources of light.

Or

Why give thought to
the stars that twinkle,
projecting,
just enough
light,
just far enough
to resemble
pinholes, in a
seemingly endless vacuum of space,
always twinkling.

As the days go by,
and the nights go by,
how often do we realize
that sun is still shining,
the moon is still reflecting,
always reflecting,
and the stars still twinkle
the same light,
always the same light.

Is there really a past?
Can there be a future?

How can we tell the difference
if all we have is
the present moment
and our memories.
Can memories be trusted,
or are we unknowingly deceived by them,
over and over again,
constantly making up yesterdays
and hoping for a future,
from Memory’s fancy,
that never comes.

Are the voices in our heads
from the past
or the future,
and can it be
that both
past and future
may be unknown to us.

The only certainty
is that not even the present
is certain,
for the present is the most deceiving
of all,
always changing.

Can it be, that
our memories are not
just from the past, but
also from the future?

Was not the past once the present?

Is the future a prediction,
a mere thought,
or more of
an expectation of an extension, of
the present and past.

What about the present,
the most short lived of all,
instantaneously becoming
the past, and
incapable of being the future.

Can we say that
there is no present
but that we are either
holding on to the past
or worrying about the future?

If, there is no past,
no present,
or future,
because our minds
are forever expanding,
forever creating,
then what is there?

The answer is simple;
there is only Thought.
