When taking a moment to look ahead
(Or look behind)
Also take a moment to look at where you are now.
Like the middle child, the present is often forgotten.
Take a moment to breathe through both nostrils,
Because one could’ve chosen violence and decided not to work that day.
Take a moment to hug your grandparents, parents, pets, or any other loved ones,
Because one day they’ll be out of reach.
Take a moment to look in the mirror and thank your body;
It’s gotten you this far in life, no telling where it’ll take you next.
Look at the sky at night and appreciate the moon
Before a billionaire takes it over.
And take a break from looking at the news.
