Create A Life

You praise your good days 

Only during your bad ones.

You appreciate something 

Only after you lose it.

You want the sun 

Only when you’re shivering.

Do you ever feel grateful?

Grateful for everything?

Do you acknowledge the moment 

While you’re in it?

Do you appreciate the good times 

As you live through it?

Do you learn from the bad times 

As you strive through it?

Do you smell the petrichor 

And feel the rain?

Or do you forget to look around you 

And stare at the ‘aesthetic’ nature?

Or are you so busy making a living,

That you forgot to create a life?
