an ode to being present

Don't let your mind get weary and confused
Your will be still, don't try
Don't let your heart get heavy child
Inside you there's a strength that lies
Don't let your soul get lonely child
It's only time, it will go by
Don't look for love in faces, places
It's in you, that's where you'll find kindness
Be here now, here now
Be here now, here now
Don't lose your faith in me
And I will try not to lose faith in you
Don't put your trust in walls
'Cause walls will only crush you when they fall
Be here now, here now
Be here now, here now

"Be Here Now" by Ray LaMontagne

i hope that if you're in a moment of fear or isolation today, looking only to your past or future for the answers, this song finds you and INSPIRES you. it's be years since i took a listen to it, but this morning i woke up with it on my mind. more than me needing right now, it's like a gentle reminder.
man, this man. what a writer. love seeing people using their God given talent so obviously.
