pretty up and down

this pretty up and down of life. it's down and up and down and up and up. it's life. it's happening all around, while i stand still. action not required. just be. while it happens. all around. just breathe. and let it happen all around. and soak it in. this pretty up and down. soak it in and up and down.

you know what it is to feel beautiful. you know what it is to feel beautiful and free and easy and alive. and you know it comes and goes, though. it's pretty. it's up and down. it's life.

it's pretty, you know this.

and you know what it is to feel. and you know what it is to care. and you know what it is to think that enough, i don't care, not one more time, not for no one. and you know it never lasts. cause the pain that comes with feeling is every time more tolerable than the world would be without having felt it in the first place. the world is intolerable without this beauty. this pretty up and down. and you know the only point of it in the first place is to feel. to be. to breathe easy and free and pretty up and down. you know it only ever mattered that you had it anyway in the first place. not that you managed to keep it clutched in your hands away from the light and the air and the everything that is and changes and happens and pretties all up and down and sideways.

and you're not one to feel afraid. i know, i know. you're always scared. but you're not one to feel afraid. yer silly, you just want attention. yer bigger and grander and simpler than that. and you've always understood the pretty up and down.

don't let other people make you doubt yourself. you're tired is all. and silly and stagnant and inspired.
