Is there time enough,
For me to sit,
and watch the browning of the leaves?

Is there time enough,
for me to sit,
and feel the waves wash against my feet?

Is there me enough,
for me to sit,
and enjoy the world going by?

Is there me enough,
for me to sit,
and allow myself to smile?

In today’s world; one that is so caught up with the excesses of life, charged with the inability to wait or be patient for anything, we are lost in a realm of superficiality that we don’t address or consider, and this superficiality –I feel– has brought our generation to a place where nothing is enough;
Love is not enough, unless your bedfellow is an aesthetically exquisite individual, matching your vision of the perfect ten.
Living is not enough, unless the life you lead matches the personas portrayed by other “social media influencers” and celebrities you see online.
Time is not enough, because it feels to you like an anchor, holding you back from the success that you can achieve if you just, “had some more time”.

It is enough, all of those things are enough and more, if only you allow yourself the opportunity to stop, breathe, and live truly in the moment that you are in.
You may have a hundred different spaces to channel your blame with respect to why you aren’t living the life you want to live, and be the person you want to be; but none of them are truly a hindrance if you put your mind and body on a path to achieve them; and all that starts with realizing your potential, and living in the moment. Your moment.

    This was beautiful. The poem, the post. Everything. And so, so true.

  2. Thank you so much, Cristian. I’m so glad you think so. If only more people reflected on the time they actually use productively in a day, versus the time they spend thinking of all the things that’s not being done, there’d be so much more positive change, and growth in the world.

    Been a big fan of your work for so long, so this is humbling.
    Have a great day 🙂
