life is everything


Someone may ask
What uplifts you
You may say something obvious
Summer, friends, food, family, your significant other
But rarely will a person ever answer, life
What's more uplifting than the opportunity for you to live
For you to make connections, love and experience
Life is everything you know
Life is all you know
Life is your first kiss
Life is your childs birth
Life is everything you see touch and feel
Life is even death
Even in death you're reminded of how alive you really are
So when I am asked that simple question
My answer will not be love or freedom or puppies
Yes, these answers may be valid but they are not correct
I will answer, life
Once you realize how big life is
How big you are
Maybe then you'll answer with life
