What It Means

When you start living for the smallest of reasons -

that’s when you start to know you are really living.

It’s always a million little things -

how we fall in love,

how we build our life,

how realities come to be.

It’s the smell of rain after thunderstorms,

the shades of sunset swirling together,

the first taste of your tea in the morning,

the warmth of the sun on your bare skin,

the sound of a child’s laugh,

flowers that grow in random places.

When you start looking at things,

really really looking,

you’ll start living.

Because then,

you’ll understand

how it is to be human

in a world of humans.
