Because, today morning I again woke up late. Yes, yet again. But this time my mind did not have an excuse to make. Instead, it had a question to ask?
“So, are you still existing?” my thoughts rumbled
For a few seconds yes, I fumbled and mumbled.
But soon I had a very broad smile
Even after a morning that I had missed, couldn’t mourn for it this while.
I mean, that’s exactly what I used to do every time I woke up late
Regret of sleeping more, regret of missing the routine again at stake.
In those times my “Everything happens for good.” went for a toss
But today, I was a few hours late yet I woke like a boss.
Today, it didn’t matter what I had missed
Today, what mattered the most was, “Do I still exist?”
Am I still alive to live the rest of the day?
Or am I cribbing for losing a part in every way?
Can I breathe and live better for I have so many moments yet to make today?
Or am I frowning again, rushing with things and just giving way?
No. Today I wanted to be alive to a new day
I wanted to be dead for the sorrow in every way.
I wanted to dance, jump around and smile
I still wanted to jog, so what if I missed it in the morning, I’d make time for it some while.
I guess this was a change and it definitely was a great one
With frowns I would just worry about what I lost but with a smile I found things I had lost and I was done.
With my smile I made people around me happy
Imagine just by living in the present I shooed everything unhappy.
I learned how to mark my existance today
We’re all as it is going to be extinct one day.
