Wouldn’t you?

Have you ever looked at the sky and wonder
as you watch the colors of the sun set change the sky
if you too could fly away
change like the clouds and find better winds to carry your wings
look at the world from far above
where no one can touch your dreams
take away your smile
or play with your emotions as if they didn’t matter 

Don’t you wish you could fly away with the seasons
meet new people and see the world
as if you only had one chance to see it all
sit in the gardens forgotten by this fast moving life
read by the waterfalls hidden from the stress of this race to make it on top

Walk away slowly and calm
as if this life was more than a next pay check
enjoy every breath you take
rather than been reminder at yoga class that yes you are breathing 

Sleep in under the stars just because, there is not a reason not to
dream about dragons and fairies
fighting battles of pretend where no kids get hurt 

Wouldn’t you like to love
without fear to fail
with certainty that it will not hurt
with dignity and slef respect
and yet with all willingness to give it all away…

Wouldn’t you ?

Dance until you feet move with out second though
And your heart is beating at the beat of this thing call happiness
And cry tears of joy
Because life is beautiful and
You are here alive and dancing 

Close your eyes and feel
The summer breeze
And the heat of the sun kissing your skin
As the minutes wondering away
And you have no hurry to get then back
Because you are where you need to be
And everything else will wait 

Listening to the world go about
And know that you are not running without breath
Instead you are walking with the certainty that it will be ok
Today and every day
from this day forward 

Because, why wouldn’t be Ok? You survive this far, don’t you think is about time to start feeling alive ?
