GIVE FOR TODAY
(5/29/18)

they want
to be
somewhere
else

doing
something
else

possibly
with someone
else

they don't
worry about
an indefinite
future

they want
to have fun
now

still
they refuse
to recognize
the miracle
of each
heartbeat

each breath

expending
effort
to realize such
is a concept
foreign
to them

they think
only
of foreign travel

foreign currency

unwilling
to fully invest
themselves
in each
given moment

each gift
of a moment

their lives
are spent
outside
of themselves

they are
to be
avoided

even
if such action
results
in solitude

standing
alone

smiling
in the sunshine
of existence

wherever
we may
be
