i have these moments
moments where i forget to

something so natural,
yet mechanic and
widely relied upon
and i start to think
what if the whole world
suddenly forgot how to

i realise it
how easy it was to forget
and i wonder
can something
so easily overlooked
be all that important
to begin with

and then
i breathe.

      Yes anon, it seems the simplest things in life can be overlooked and taken for granted. And then we come back to Earth (for a while). Thank you for the friendship. Welcome to MPS.

        Yes - we just have to don't we....... sometimes it seems it would be so easy to stop but it isn't!
