Are you sleeping?
Are you distracted
are you foggy
are you hazy?
Are you conscious of the thoughts that you are thinking?
Are you aware of the movements you are making?
Are you intending on the life that you are living?
watch the sunrise
Inhale and let life fill you
exhale and let life go.
and really taste it
without the distraction of a conversation
without the dullness of a screen.
wholly, deeply, fully
let it sting you let it cut you let it burn you
let it touch you let it hold you let it heal you.
if you are wondering
if your work is just for something
that sells your soul to someone for nothing
if your life is retold history
if your existence is just existing.
We’re all driving on this grid that snakes and splits
from concrete to jungle
from treacherous to tame
why don’t we wash our windows
why don’t we look ahead
why don’t we wake up?
