THIS MATTERS

This matters
This matters as I ought to keep a generous mind
This matters because I should maintain a grateful attitude
This matters that I treasure every single moment, whether big or small as size and significance do not correlate
This matters because this matters

This matters as I strive to live a life of very few regrets, as a life of no regrets is almost impossible
This matters that I live even if it kills me
This matters that if it is worth it then I should die for what I believe in
This matters, of course, this matters

This matters that I am human, after all, what else can I be?

gods? If only I knew how jealous of me they are
This matters that I revel in purpose, because without it these matters would amount to groveling in the dark, and unless something changes, with no promise of light at the end of the tunnel
This matters that I accept risks and take my chances

Scratch that, I take chances, whether there are mine or not, as fortune favors the brave, and brave men are but cowards that other cowards just do not know about
This matters, why not, this matters

This matters because these matters are quite simple, and living a simple life isn’t quite far from these matters
This matters that I win, whether a victory, a loss, or an experience, I win all, with just an alignment of my perspective
This matters that compromise, coexistence and community are not just words I gloss over, but that in the daily living of this life they are words to I live by
This matters, but wait! Why wouldn’t it?
That is why this matters
