Favorite Quote:
Do what you like and like what you do.


Before reading:
This is completely
Untrue, wrong,
And incoherent
In the truest sense.
Object to all of this
If you wish,
You’re actually correct.
I stand in the wrong.
Thank you.

Sunrise
Sunset

Sunset

Everyone loves watching the sun set

Perhaps with a loved one

Perhaps alone

The beauty is what matters

Sunset

Not that different from

Sunrise

Same colors

Just different times

Sunrise
Sunset

Day

Life
Sunrise

Beginning

Birth
Sunset

Ending

Death

Sunset

Everyone watched Death intently

With keen eyes trying to find the beauty

Admiring the colors

The steps, the process

But not seeing it for what

It truly is
The end of the day
It’s time to sleep
The morning will come, no worries
Or is there?
But still
It’s one of those countless days
Might be important
Might not
Does it matter?
Maybe
Maybe not

What happens at night?
Sleeping?
Dreaming?
Partying?
It depends…
Who knows but the life
That’s being discussed?

Anyway…
Why can’t the bystanders
See the beauty?
It’s an everyday occurrence
It’s natural
Learn to love the one you’re with
…Well…
They don’t have to…
But still…

Sunrise

Why don’t they watch the sunrise
So intently?
They don’t wake up that early
They’re too lazy
They dismiss it
…Well…
There’s some who watch it
But they’re so few in number
…Why?

Day

Often the bystanders
Who watch day
Who observe it all
Hide
They’re virtually impossible
To find
Unless of course
You’re lucky
That’s great.
…Well…
I’m not suggesting
That’s the way it should be
Or that’s the way all bystanders should see
But still
Why not?
Seeing beauty every day is…
Well…
Beautiful


Is that why you think
Life is so ugly?
You’re just blind to the
Everyday beauty?
You just haven’t seen it yet?
Alright…
I have a plan

One day
When you’re feeling blue
And the sky agrees with your mood
Walk outside
Play in the rain
Splash the puddles
Feel the cold seep into your body
And run
Note the wind speed
Ignore your fingers
As they grow numb
Spin around
Laugh
And forget everything
But the tears
That the clouds offer you
When the rain stops
Lay in the grass
Look up at the overcast sky
And acknowledge every single
Detail in the clouds DNA
See how it flows in the sky
And melts into the heavens
Like a rainbow on a heavy spring day
Forget everything
You are as free as a
Sing-song bird
You are breathing
You are alive
You are beautiful


Yes,


It’s that easy

Sunrise
Sunset
Day
And now
It is Night
