Sometimes I forget, but mostly I remember

A poem by Julie Foubister

Sometimes I forget.
Sometimes I fall into darkness.
Sometimes there is only fear.
Sometimes I become too attached to all that isn’t now.
Sometimes I’ve felt like stepping off.
Sometimes in the past I’ve longed to go back to the place without breath.
Sometimes I feel all that is, somehow isn’t good enough.
But then I remember again…
I remember that we only know light in contrast to darkness.
I remember that right now is all that exists and right now is so beautiful in its simplicity.
I remember I am alive. I remember to breathe.
I remember that I create my reality in this moment.
I remember that I always have choice.
I remember that whilst I am alive there is always hope.
I remember what I’ve always known to be true; that this life is heaven on earth.
I remember that a transitory glimpse turns into a lingering moment.
I remember that it is all perspective.
I remember that I am not the circumstances or traumas.
I remember that life unfolds in the direction I choose to look in.
I remember to choose wisely.
I remember that I am the observer.
And then…

I remember that nothing can hurt me from this place.
