all the old structures are collapsing

no energy supports them any more

like it or not you'll have to be

living in the moment

acting in the instant

where no past and no future exist

like it or not you'll have to live in the Now

and know at last that this is all there is

and the new structures will rise and fall also

in their timeless pattern onto their timely ends

and how well you built will determine

what you face through lifetimes of these terms

now enough of this sorrow take the wine of your choosing

and drink to the past that is never totally gone

and the future that is always and ever in the present

and don't take these words as an end-and-be-all

whatever happens in the spirit realm is eternal

it's worldly manifestations are not

the old structures become the new structures for living

and only by knowing and living that

is your way you still need to be told

you don't need the grief of disdaining this?

take up your ruin and it or not

that is how it is and how you are...
