Can you make your face wet
Damp to the touch?
Can you make your stomach clench
Almost to the point of pain?
Can you make your throat feel tight
As if it were to close?
Can you make your mouth feel dry
So that it’s hard to swallow?
Can you breathe a long breath,
One that’s almost final?
Can you make your eyes glitter
But not spill over?
Can you feel the warmth,
The cool,
The heat,
The cold,
As it radiates off your body?
Can you feel the gentle pounding
Of your heart in your chest?
Can you feel the nonexistent thickness
Of the air around you?
Can you feel the threads of your clothes
As they brush your skin?
Can you see what you cannot,
Such as a bat sees the world?
Can you feel what others might not feel,
See what others might not see?
Watch. 
Listen.
Feel. 
But most of all
Live.
