Close your eyes
allow the noise to fade out
let the world fall away into nothing
now, open your eyes, what do you see…
People rushing past, always in a hurry
clouds lazily moving with the wind
perhaps you see a bird or a street performer
appreciate all this
it is a moment that will never happen again
soon it will all be gone.
Will you remember
will anyone remember
this day, this minute,
this moment in history when anything can happen?
Feel, see, experience and remember
your life is short,
don’t waste time worrying.
Appreciate that you exist now.
