Raise your head


Raise your head, lift your eyes -

See the drifting clouds redraw themselves

in stories of the sky


Leave alone your counting -

Business cards and calendar days,

hours spent in traffic


Straighten your back, lift your shoulders -

Breathe deep into your consciousness

the shifting colours of passing day


No more slouching, shallow breathing -

Jagged streams of consciousness

through restless, sleepless hours


Raise your arms, raise your voice-

Feel the pulse of vitality,

be counted amongst the living
