Scroll, click
But this is what they said

It’s getting harder to steer
Scroll, click
Just stop living in fear

Within the flaws
Of an ordinary day
It sets sail
On the waves
Of the wind

Unannounced
And unassuming

Take pause

And joy and pain
Walk effortlessly

Unattached
And finally free

Yet enlivens
The heart

And as you relax
Breathing deeply
Within the space between
For a moment
Life begins
