Many people exist on Earth, allowing valuable and limited time to pass them by.
They're surrounded in their own self pity, feeling sorry for themselves.
As if drowning in your own sorrows will keep you afloat?
It never makes things get any better, in fact it only allows it to get worse.
These people walk around feeling unaccomplished, never trying anything thing new.
Their entire lives has become a routine because they do the same things, day in and day out.
They are just one of the many functioning members of society.
They're carrying on and existing.
Their lungs are steadily filled with air.
This is what allows them to push forward.
They continue to exist, never really feeling the full satisfaction that life has to bring.
They're just breathing, supplying their lungs with oxygen.
They seem to always fail to see the full extent and joy that life has to bring.
Today I awake, overturning a new stone in my life.
I inhale fresh air, and although my day wasn't all I hoped it to be yesterday,
I have full optimism that today will be so much greater.
I proceed with my everyday occurrences, but I quickly embrace new people, experiences,
and lessons that can be learned for today.
I do not shut the door, on what seems foreign to me, instead I open my ears and I am willing
to listen and learn.
I am able to see the beauty that life has to offer.
I am not stuck inside of my box, only doing what is routine.
I am alive.
I am living not just breathing.
