Just Be

Disclaimer: This poem has got NOTHING to do with law. Law aspirants can have other thoughts, right?

For one day,

let's be quiet;

let's not blabber away to infinity.

For one day,

let's not brood over the past;

let's not plan a dream called Future.

For one day,

let's assume it to be our last;

let's just live our life.

For one day,

let's not glare at the watch;

let's not hurry.

For one day,

let's not run;

let's just walk.

For one day,

let's not pant and sigh;

let's just breathe.

For one day,

let's not cringe at the wretched mirror;

let's try to see within.

                                                      

For one day,

let's not live on the scales;

let's not care. 

For one day,

let's not compare; 

let's acknowledge our uniqueness.

For one day,

let's cast away futile vanity;

let's shun pretense.

For one day,

let's avoid attempting to calculate the value of every priceless relationship;

let's not complicate things;

let's believe in the power of simple unqualified love.

For one day,

let's not hide behind the mask of lies and hypocrisy;

let's seek the truth.

For one day,

let's not complain;

let's be the change we want to see.

For one day,

let's lock up wisdom and throw away the key;

let's bring back that innocence. 

For one day,

let's feel the raindrops on our skin;

let's laugh out loud.

For one day,

let's not think about covering the world;

let's not run away from ourselves;

let's travel inside to discover who we really are.

For one day,

let's not exist;

let's live. 

For one day,

let's take pride in being ourselves;

let's just be.
