Right Here, Right Now.

~

Right here,

Right now.

~

Sat at home,

In a musical cloud.

~

Spending every day at the college I love,

Spending every moment with the people I adore.

~

Each day is a roller-coaster of emotions,

Every phrase spoken is a spark for a story.

~

Every breath is blessed,

Every bodily function is a miracle.

~

I don't care about my flaws,

I don't regret any of my mistakes,

I know I prejudge others,

I know that I swear when I shouldn't,

I know I can be rude and that I can be cruel.

~

But,

Right here,

Right now.

I am human,

All of me,

Down to the last atom of my anatomy,

Down to the last spark of my imagination.

~

I am all and only human.

~

Is there a God?

Should there be a God?

Does it matter?

~

Pip, Doug, Finnick, Sam, Rosie, Jess, Alice, Charley, Norma, Charlotte.

~

There is so much to love and hate.

So many people to admire,

So many idea's to explore,

So many brilliant things to understand.

~

I am all and only human.

~

I groan and wince in pain,

I complain about the rain, sun and sand,

I do things I shouldn't,

I say things I wish to take back.

~

But I write,

I love,

I dance,

I sing,

I move,

~

I live.

~

'Drop everything now. Meet me in the pouring rain. Kiss me on the side-walk, take away the pain'

~

If we die at 70 or 17,

It doesn't matter.

~

We are human and it is all we will ever be.

~

What comes after is another world,

Angel's, Demon's, Spirit's, Endless voids.

~

Who knows?

Who Cares?

~

Right here,

Right now,

Is all we have and all we will ever know.

~

'No, I'm not trying to scare you, you're already scared. Alright, I'm scared.'

~

After death you become only a memory to this life,

So live for today.

~

I am all and only human.

~

This brain, these hands, this face, this jaw, this heart, these lungs, these nerves...

~

These are nothing more than what I need to love my life, live who I am, love my body.

Love my humanity while I have it.

~

These are my tools to make a mark. On my friends, on my college, on the world around me.

These are my writing tools to make a mark on the endless growing parchment of stories.

~

So many people,

So many characters,

Waiting to be developed,

Waiting to be taken on their own story.

~

'Romeo. If thou art brave. Come settle with me boy.'

~

Emotions, tragedies, personalities, relationships.

All waiting to be created,

An endless world of possibility.

~

Maze Runner to Skulduggery Pleasant to Terry Pratchett to Hunger Games.

~

The imagination is an amazing gift.

People, fiction or real, are amazing creatures.

~

The time to live.

Here.

Now.

~

In the real world,

In the pages of books,

At the end of a pen,

At the start of a new worlds.

~

Fantasy or Reality,

Make it your own.

~

Live for today,

For tomorrow is unknown.
