Still Life

"How do we hold a moment?

Is it a sight? A sound? A sensation?

Does it have weight you can support with an outstretched palm?

Does it have distant you can travel unrest less feet?

Or do moments hold us?

In that instant, when we let the universe drip from our soul.

Seep through our skin, and teach us to feel the difference between existing and living.

How can you capture something that is meant to capture you?

Swimming against the currents of time, unwilling to surrender.

We are concerned with every modern proof of experience, and have cheated ourselves out of lives well lived.

Time was always meant to linger.

To wrap around us in beauty.

That captures our mind and astonishes our souls.

The anthem of which we think we know is always changed.

And what we hope to find is ever realized.

To hold such moments is to unearth the discoveries of a lifetime.

If only you lived them."
