Have you ever just stopped, looked around, took a breath,
And felt a rush of joy to know you are indeed alive?
As humans, we are seemingly the only animal
Which can contemplate our own death;
We are able to remember the past and ponder the future.
Further, we are able to joy from the scent in the air,
Which emits a sweet earth-smell, drawn into our nostrils;
We have a rush, while viewing a field of golden poppies;
Our heart pounds, when viewing a herd of stampeding bison.
Recall such experiences and realize how very special it is to be alive!
