Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Contemplation

Taking the space to contemplate
A brief moment in time
To stop!
Not in purposeful meditation
But to pause;
To consider;
To think
Amidst the busyness of the day
Ahead the pile of ironing
The burgeoning debate
The critical evaluation of an overdue essay
And mass of backdated reading
Pressing marketing deadlines;
School letters;
Children’s demands
Appointments;
Administration;
The mundane
To stop!
And to ponder
To imagine that if the world stopped
If the last breath left my soul and the final beat pulsed through my heart
So that life itself vanished in this moment
What would my legacy be?
What footprint would I have left in the sand?
What difference would I have made?
And with that thought;
That contemplation;
Momentum returns
With a new urgency

The Best Things Are Worth Waiting For
