Are you alive?


Listen to the sounds

Of trees

See the lightning

In the sky

Feel the breeze

Of the night

On your cheeks

Are you alive?

Breathe your love in

Breathe your worries out

Hold the small hands

Look in the innocent eyes

What do you see?

Are you alive?

Stop thinking

Stop talking

Are you here?

Can you hear?

The gentle sounds

Can you taste?

Your own life?

Life is a moment

Of being aware

Of being alive!

A simple experience

Yet lost

In the midst

Of the ocean of


Of building castles

Out of the fabric

Of clouds

Of fearing

Fear itself

Of pretending

That we’re


Life is found

When we lose

All illusions

When we become

Brave enough

To see through

The delusion

And reach the far side

Of our agony

Only to find

That we’re back

To where 

We’d started

Long ago

When life was simple

When we were
