Exist by Noah ferraro

we all need a reason
a quantification of joy and suffering
a futile effort to veil our desolation
perpetuated by our virulent fear of all unknown

circumvent the unknown
exist in the future
become like that of the future
nothing but mere

a concept died today
there was no mourning
upon its death it ultimately displayed vitality
as life in abundance
flourished from decomposition

I was born today
saturated with sentiments exceeding love
not love for myself or any other
it was if I was falling in love
with life itself

I didn’t dare ask myself the cause
I just observed life
life untarnished by rumination
I didn’t dare focus on the inner mechanisms
I just let the orchestra play in unison
resonating through my heart

in the fleeting moments
as I took in every detail
there was no better feeling
than to be alive

and I wish you all the very worst
to experience the beauty
in dragging yourself out
of the darkest pits we all compose
