Like falling in love?
Or meeting your newborn child?
Or just watching a sunset in all of nature’s glory?
Aren’t there so many gifts life has…
for a little idiotic happiness?
Your patience? Resilience?
Your open heart?
Can you use your superpowers today?
Don’t we build most devices with one?
Your DVD? And music player?
What if you allowed yourself to have one?
And just hit pause once in a while?
Can you take a breath and hit pause today?
Haven’t we all?
Only we’re not aware of each other’s thing?
Everyone else looks okay?
But what if we took a moment…?
to acknowledge each other’s humanity?
Maybe then we wouldn’t be going through it alone?
You’ve waited too long?
But couldn’t you still take…
the honorable path today?
