Ten Minutes

It’s ten minutes to eternity

We face the great nothingness

whilst the construct of time

ticks slowly on

and the moon and the sun

play hide and seek around this planet

Nonchalant yet regular

abiding by universal law

Neither negative or positive

not good nor bad

It          Just      Is

without question        

Yet, somewhere in between

We, the sentient beings

Want to be       -          Must be

At All Costs

Such that we are

creatures of this planet who

Extol our own virtues

Remain trapped in conditioning

and clinging to physical life

We hide our terror

behind brittle masks

It’s ten minutes to eternity

And the ocean screams

The only way out is in – the only way out is in
