Don’t Miss Now

The life you chose –
There’s never a list for it
Of cons and pros
You find what you love, and you commit

And you’re looking so far down
The road so well
That you could forget your crown
Isn’t just somewhere else

You get bumped and bruised and worse
For choosing the road less traveled
You know the reward is rich
If you persist through the darkest battles
Open your eyes,
Your prize is right before you, somehow
Whatever you do, just don’t miss now

You’re on a bus
Don’t notice the miles and months fly by
To the rest of us
You’re living the highest kind of life

I know the price you pay
Is costlier than it seems
It’s worth another day
The end justifies your means

All that you’re working for
Could blind you to the treasures all around you
So don’t miss these moments, please
The joy before the crown you seek

I’m living for May 4, and that is not ok. Because in the process, I am missing now. I just needed this reminder.
