Some anticipate what the next song may be.
Some listen to the song.
Some control what is inside.
Some let their zest come out uncensored.
Some anticipate life.
Some participate in life.
Some are numb and protected.
Some are sensitive and receptive.
Some imagine how it should feel.
Some feel and experience the moment.
Some mourn what was.
Some welcome what is.
Some imagine what swimming might be like.
Some swim in the river.
Some feel through their mind.
Some feel with their heart.
Some hold on by breathing shallow.
Some let go by breathing deep.
Some prepare to live in the future.
Some live in the now.
What aspects of your life do you participate in enthusiastically?
What aspects of your life do you try to anticipate?
