…In this world that convinces us to look forward

Souls that undoubtedly exist after death

Creating a life that reflects your deepest daydream

Remembering everything your parents ever told you

Explanations that simplify and fix problems

A day to think about the rest of your life

Miles to walk alone and think (or not)

Spending time with needy relatives

…into our futures with hope, or backward into shameful pasts

Accessible, yet cautious

Talking comfortably and confidently

…I advise you to ignore anyone that tells you

Newspapers that promise one good day

In love with everyone and everything, within reason

Giving your full, undivided attention

Holding hands

Time to watch the sunset.

…the truth is always vertical.
