ALIVE

Updated Jun 12, 2017

THE CONCEPT OF BEING ALIVE IS NOT THAT YOU CAN SEE AND BREATHE
NOR IS IT YOUR ABILITY TO WALK AND TALK AND SOLVE PROBLEMS
NONE OF THESE  DETERMINES IF YOU ARE REALLY TRULY ALIVE
PERHAPS FROM A MEDICAL STANDPOINT THESE WOULD BE ENOUGH
 
AND YES FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES YOUR BODY IS VERY MUCH ALIVE
EVERY FUNCTION THAT NEEDS TO BE WORKING IS IN PROPER MODE
YOU ARE ALIVE. VERY MUCH SO. YOU ARE A HEALTHY SPECIMAN
AND YET YOU ARE NOT ALIVE. YOU DONT FEEL AT ALL ALIVE AND WELL
 
THERE MAY BE A VERY GOOD REASON FOR THIS FEELING OF MALAIS
BUT OF COURSE YOU CAN’T QUITE UNDERSTAND THIS EMPTY FEELING
YOU ARE LOST IN A GREAT SEA OF HUMANITY. UNABLE TO COPE
ASK YOURSELF IF YOU WILL, HOW THIS HAPPENED TO COME ABOUT
 
YOU MUST BE TRUTHFUL TO YOURSELF AND NOT TRY TO HIDE
THERE IS NOTHING TO BE GAINED BY LYING TO YOURSELF
MANY QUESTIONS MUST BE ASKED AND HOPEFULLY ANSWERED
A DOOR TO YOUR SOUL ONCE LOCKED MUST NOW BE OPENED
 
YOU THINK BACK ON YOUR LIFE. ON YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
SOMETHING IS MISSING. YOU FEEL THAT EMPTINESS INSIDE YOU
YOU REALIZE YOU HAVE BEEN NEGLECTFUL. YOUR ONLY GOAL TO PLEASE YOURSELF
YOU WORK HARD.WHY NOT  LET OTHERS DO THE SAME. ITS OF NO CONCERN OF YOURS
 
AS THESE THOUGHTS ARE FILTERING THROUGH YOUR CONCIOUSNESS
A GLIMMER OF LIGHT FLICKERS ON WHEN YOU ASK YOURSELF WHAT ABOUT CHARITY
THERE ARE PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD OR EVEN IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD
NEEDING ASSISTANCE BUT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP. IF ANYTHING AT ALL
 
THE REALIZATION THAT YOU HAVE ONLY BEEN OCCUPIED WITH YOUR OWN NEEDS
NOT THOSE OF OTHERS LEAVES YOU FEELING SAD. DISHEARTENED
YOU MAKE A PROMISE. YOU VOW TO TRY AND DO BETTER. TO CARE
THIS IS WHAT WILL BRING YOU TO LIFE. THIS COMMITTMENT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL TRULY ALIVE
