Stop for a Minute

by Laurel Scheel

Close your eyes

breathe deep

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.
