kids say "live for today!"
but i already did that,
so now "today" is yesterday,
and I'm not one to turn around.
adults say "live for tomorrow"
but tomorrow isn't here,
and I'm in no rush
to want to say "live for today."
so what to live for?
how about living?
I'm breathing because i breathed so that i can breath.
i learned to lace my shoes so they would be laced.
i kept walking because i walked away so i wouldn't have to walk.
i lived so i could have lived in my life,
and that my life has been alive.
how about living?
kids forget to think.
adults forget to look.
i think looking at life,
is like looking at how i lived so that i could live the way I'm living.
how about living?
