Racing Toward or From?

Are we racing toward
or fleeing from?
Hurry bleeds me dry.

I turn and walk backwards
hoping to see what I missed
as I rushed by.

I am where I am
for only here
am I truly here
not yesterday
or tomorrow
just here with soul opened
awareness spread around me
like a cloak of forever.

If I forget to ask
who I am
then I will never know
left with not even
a memory of having been.
