Does the past weigh heavy
on those feeble shoulders?
“Today is a new day”
do you wake
Or have you let another sun set without seeing its fire.
Do you feel a warm embrace?
Or have hugs become routine
stumbling in a haze
Have you permitted the days
What evil, damp villain has extinguished your fire?
you ARE alive.
So many would give
for one more opportunity
These daily occurrences taken for granted.
YOU are alive
Endless opportunities to awaken
Infinite possibilities for exploration
Beautiful people, pending interactions
Some sleep forever and dream of all you have.
you are ALIVE.
