No Pretend Life — Misty Always In The Moment — Poetry

No pretend life:

there’s no pretend life, I’m not spirit cloaked as form, nor an illusion playing out a given role. This is it, the reality of the moment and nothing more.


of course I make no call on mystery, I’m not assuming any knowledge of what may happen when my time is gone. It would only be speculation and bring nothing to this one life I now have. This moment is enough…
