You Start living forever !

“You start living forever
if you do travel,
if you do read,
If you do listen to the sounds of life,
If you do appreciate yourself.

You start living forever
When you save your self-esteem;
When you do let others help you.

You start living forever
If you become the king of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths however you want…
If you do change your routine,
If you do wear different colours
Or you do speak to those you don’t know.

You start living forever
If you do not avoid to feel passion
And their non - turbulent emotions;
Those which don't make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat slow.

You start living forever
If you do change your life when you are satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do go after a dream,
If you do allow yourself,
Never in your lifetime,
To run towards sensible advice.”
