without words

April 18, 2020 life

what does it take
to feel truly alive?

stop,
wherever you are,
and look around you,
and see everything
as if you’ve never
seen it before.

see it without words,
without a history
for each thing.

then you will not
be living in a story,
and life will not
be separate from you.

your life will fall away,
and you will just
be life.
