listen close

Have no delusions about our time here:
there are a thousand ways to live life
and a million other ways to waste it

we owe it to ourselves
to feel the fullness of being alive
before our lungs give out—

spontaneity is oxygen
breathe deep into the moment
listen close for the sound of each other
( everything else is just noise )

-Bea Policarpio
