Since you are reading these words
congrats on not being dead!
(Notice where I placed the emphasis:
On death–not life instead!
Because being alive requires more than undeath;
It means having the courage to take the next breath.)
Too many people I know
Believe life comes with a price.
They hustle and bustle, buying what’s new
hoping it will suffice.
But life means much more than your possessions or wealth!
It means hope for tomorrow regardless of health.
If you have read up to here
my friend, smile! For you’re alive.
“But what” you ask, “about reading this text
makes me live and thrive?”
Because being alive–and this is the pivot–
Is doing each task like you’ll never re-live it.
