The Presence of Life

One of the things I love the most
Is seeing and witnessing
Life present in folks

The Presence of Life

These things are our thoughts
Our ideas
Our creativity
Our hope despite all things 
Our laughter
Our faith
Our joy
Our happiness
Our strength
The very things we find value in

Our functioning and operating
Our distinctly given names
Our principles that we stand on
Our way of living and being
Our survival mechanisms

The Presence of Life

A long time ago
I was hired to witness souls enclosed in hidden environments 
Who had no presence of Life within
It was mesmerizing as I sat to just witness

There was no life
No thoughts
No ideas 
No different functions
As night turned to day
No laughter
No nothing 

No Presence of Life

No hope
No joy
No faith
No noise

Just souls drafted in skin
With no presence of Life within

No different mindsets
No speech
Nothing to set the soul apart to say…
“See! Here is the presence of Life for this being!”

There was nothing
Just darkness, I would say
And the worst part of all
I don’t believe they knew it was dark on any of the days 
They stayed lifeless and systematic routines became their way

Life and new day was possibly long ago thrown away
I do not truly know
All of their stories to say
But one thing was certain 
Life and the presence thereof…
Wasn’t displayed

So after witnessing such an experience as this
I love to see the presence of Life displayed
Even if my thoughts don’t line up with theirs
Even if my voice don’t speak the same
Even if I have a different name
Even if my heart don’t beat the same

Despite all differences
We were all made different
A distinct uniqueness 
A beauty to behold
GOD given life beings 

The Presence of Life
Will always remain a beautiful thing
