‘Live’ she says

Death twitches my ear
‘Live’ she says
– paths of meaning

Chasing a paycheck, constantly checking our stocks, or emails,  worrying about some unimportant things…

We forget to enjoy ourselves, We forget to live.

With each day that passes by death creeps closer, but we push Lee further back until we have achieved somthing or paid of this or done that,

No matter what goes on in life there are always small moments to enjoy

Death twitches closer.
Live.

Try to be alive

Try to be alive, You’ll be dead soon enough

Even before lockdowns were forced upon the world,
We would coast through life never really living,
Just going through the motions of getting through the workweek then not really doing much because we didn’t feel like it…

And with lockdowns, we sort of wanted to do the things we never really did when we could so we sat around hoping for things to change…

But regardless of work or lockdowns, no matter what you’re going through we can still live in the moments

You can still go home and appreciate the beauty of your partner, Take the time to taste your food, go for a walk without staring at your screen…

There are so many things that can snap us out of that mood of going through the motions, even a slightly different route home can do that…

Try to live, You’ll be dead soon enough

(I don’t know where the original quote was from but I saw it on the paths of meaning Instagram page)

UFO

Who was she I’ll never know
Beauty out of this world
She had a breathtaking glow
As soon as she came into my world
I had to watch her go
Lost in the night
Like a UFO

To Die in the present

To live in the past.

To live in the past is to die in the present,

What we had, has gone.

Businesses, Relationships, Money, Cool Kid Status…

Whatever it is, is no more.

But that does not mean that we can not rebuild, Because we can.

But we can’t rebuild in the past or the future.

Only in the present.

So we need to snap out of memory lane, dust off the dirt, Pick ourselves up and get to it.

Otherwise, we are just waiting to die.
