here, right now, in this moment

here, right now, in this moment

as i inhale this oxygen and exhale this carbon dioxide

as i am alive

am i living?

is it just my lungs that are inflating while my dreams deflate?

 

here, right now, in this moment

as my heart beats

as i am alive

am i living?

what kind of rhythm is my heartbeat  creating?

the kind that my soul can dance to ?

or is it the kind that makes my soul weep and dwell in its past pains?

 

here, right now, in this moment

as i am alive

am i living?


 

I wrote this short poem after having some thoughts about what it means to be alive. Sometimes in life we are so busy at our jobs, school etc that we do not really give ourselves some time to just live. We tend to then just focus on the things that we need to get done or get over, things that stress us. Give yourself a break.

Take a moment in which you do not think about any obligations that you have to meet. Sometimes the only obligation you should focus on is your obligation to yourself; you need to live a little.
