Alive in this Perfect Moment

Your senses notice the sky ablaze with color.
The sun emits a soft steady light
while slowly sinking into the depths
marking the close to another day.
You are alive with the beauty of knowing
that this is a perfect moment.

  1. Your words are beautiful, and no matter what your brain tells you, I believe that you, too, are beautiful. As a person who has also been battling with mental illness, I always tell people that while pain does harm, pain also allows us to treasure moments and the present much more than the others. Your words here reminded me of a poem that I wrote half a year ago, when I had moments of relief from depression. Here’s the link if you’re interested and do let me know your thoughts on them

    Here’s to more days filled with healing from literature and beauty from words.
