Today Nothing Important Happens

Today Nothing Important Happens

And that’s fine. That’s really fine.

It’s almost as fine as being allowed to breathe the same air

every single day. It’s almost as fine as being able

to smile at the smallest things as they come, at the

strangest things as they appear, at things that don’t matter

to the future, but matter now.

 

Today nothing important happens: and I’m fine, since

Today the world hasn’t ended, and I’m still breathing, and

I can still reach up to the sky and watch as clouds drip

apart from my fingers and the city is still loud but closing my

eyes it all falls away and it’s only in the swaying winds

that I can see that Today nothing important happens, but I’m still alive.

 

Today nothing important happens, so I’ll mark this day

in my calendar and say that I’m not one step closer

to achieving my dreams (If I had any) nor am I one step

closer to being a “better” person (whatever that means)

nor have I become someone special (not that I want to.)

 

Today nothing important happens, so I’ll smile

and I’ll take a while to listen, to myself, for once,

and I know that the world hasn’t ended, so things

are going to be fine, and if things aren’t fine, then

I’ll just wait another day.
