She Reminds Me To Stop, Pause & Drink The Sun Through My Skin


She sits in the grass and drinks the sun through her skin.
Life goes by so fast.
She reminds me to walk outside barefoot and feel my feet.

We forget to stop and pause just because.
She reminds me to look up.

Our breath becomes short and shallow as we rush from one thing to the next.
She smiles, and I exhale.
Potentially enjoyable things become tasks to check off a list.
She reminds me to feel the water on my skin.

The mind becomes consumed with so many thoughts and stories that don’t even exist.
She laughs and the sands of the waters of my mind settle.
This reality is ours to create.
She reminds me what it is to truly live.

She sits in the grass and drinks the sun through her skin.
And that is all she needs.

"One day you’ll laugh over how you were mistaken — How you sold off the best parts of you to be liked, accepted, given a semblance of belonging. Laugh because the only thing that could take you there
