The Coin
by Patsy Jawo

Over the hills, mountains and valleys
Lies beauty untold and mysteries unsolved
That which is only wondered about
As where things are pure, good and great
A place yearned for like a distant land
Only to be reached in the afterlife

In these cities, towns and villages
Are sights to behold, discover, treasure
That which there is never time to explore
And is here now and waiting to be seen
Experiences to be savoured, cherished
This life, the other side of the same coin

That which is near can also be afar
For distance is a creation of mind
Expressed as matter, so solid and real
Beauty is never here nor there, just is
Always can be appreciated
Enjoyed, visited, imagined, beheld

Life is neither before or after, just is
Laughter and love to be seized in the now
The now of life which all there really is
Imagination makes up the future
The past a collection of memories
The present being the gift to adore

No time to wonder what will or could be
Take now to act on what is and can be
Find in this moment joy, beauty, love
Manifest in this life good and great things
Know right now is your power to create
Reach your destined heights, the heaven within
