Afterlife

What we leave behind,

Who we have helped, how we’ve loved;

That’s our “Afterlife.”

Here, Alive

When the shadows overwhelm,

With the Inner Critic at the helm,

It’s hard to see the value I

Might have in someone else’s eye.

I assume the same is true for you,

When you don’t know just what to do

In the face of your own Self-Defeat,

The scripts you’re not sure you can beat.

When you at this steep cliff arrive,

Wondering if you ought to dive,

Know it’s not too late to thrive.

The world needs you here and alive.

Awake!

The Path goes on it’s merry way;

No stopping, speeding, or delay.

How much travel have we missed

Caught in Sleep’s seductive fist?

‘Tis not the sleep we need for rest

In order that we do our best,

But that which keeps us from the Light;

That Sleep which robs one’s mind of sight.

We tend to walk distractedly,

Not looking up that we might see

How quickly life is passing by,

Our time a breath, a gasp, a sigh.

It’s time now that we fin’lly wake

And give our drooping head a shake.

Ignore the Circus, loud and bright

Let’s focus now with all our might!

There’s much to see, yes, much to learn

With every dip and every turn;

Twixt this Earth and the Sky above,

So many Ones for us to love.

Keep walking, turning, soak it in!

Now is the time. Awake! Begin!

NOW

Soak in every laugh and smile,

Each tear and struggle; in a while,

There will be far fewer days,

So take time now to stand amazed

At every breath your lungs take in

And every raindrop on your skin.

Waste no chance to love and give,

Take time NOW to truly live.
