Give up, life ends
Hold on, life lingers with you
like an extra breath
you never knew you had
Like daylight savings time
you get more time to shine
Forget who you are, and
everything you lived for totals nothing
Swim to the ocean’s bottom
There you start over
like the sun every day, and
like each evaporating moment
Then, there is the time in between, when
nothing before or after
can free you, like
you can free yourself

Andrew: Thanks. I suppose that IS a good sign.
I could hear your voice in this one.
Paul: Thanks. Hope you are well.
Letting go of ego, living in the moment – your words here evoke the reality of this much better than the usual phrases…
Floots: Thanks. Yes, you read me right.
“positive thinking” has been branded and given a bad press – but in its literal form it’s all we’ve got
everthing else (as you say if i read you right) goes on anyway
