Are you aware?


Are you aware
that you are
not aware?
are you?

are you aware
of your heart beat?
how often do you
count the pulse?

are you aware
of your senses?
are you aware
of your actions?

are you aware
of your emotions?
are you aware
of your life?

are you aware
that you are not aware
of your self?
are you?

are you aware
that you are not aware
of what you say?
how and why you did

be aware
of your true self
and be a leader
of your inner self.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
