This Single Moment

I don’t know anything anymore
I don’t know up from down
Or east from west
Or happiness from sadness
I don’t know anything
It’s becoming one big ball
One vast, amorphous something
In the midst of this single moment
I can’t turn away from my insignificance
Or ignore my greatness
In this single moment
Just hold me in the fullness
That’s all I want
