Live a Life You Love.

Still Beautiful

I woke up again today
And laid in bed for a while.
Eventually the bed caught fire,
So I stood up and looked out the window.

But at least the light of the sun is
Still beautiful.

I went to the kitchen to fix something
And held everything I needed in my hands.
Eventually it caught fire,
So I turned and looked out my back sliding glass door.

And at least the light of the sun is
Still beautiful.

I decided to sit on the couch and relax
And held the tv remote in my hand.
Eventually it caught fire,
So I stood up and looked out the peep hole of the front door.

At least the light of the sun is
Still beautiful.

I stood still in my living room and figured:
If I just stay like this, maybe I can stay here for a while.
Eventually the walls caught fire,
And I choked on the smoke so much I couldn't breathe.

Now I lay naked on the Earth,
My house burnt to ashes behind me.
I lost everything I had in the fire,
Even my own clothes that covered me. 

As I lay here I feel the gentle support of the Earth,
Soothing me like a cool milk.
And the way the wind rolls over my skin and hair on my body,
Like someone's tickling me and wants me to come play.

As I sit up I see the fields of sage
And I feel God in the wind,
Moving through and
Gently brushing the Earth's hair.

I feel God in the wind as it moves through bent trees,
Cracking and waving together like a slow wind chime.
And I feel God in the wind
As it swirls and dances around me.

And as I look all the way up,
The light of the sun is still so beautiful.
