Automatic Stop

I stopped
Took my life off of automatic
Turned my consciousness to manual
Noticed the blooms blossoming
The pictures the clouds make
A person that I passed every day
And the ability of my legs to carry me
The more I gave thanks for these things
The more I was given to be grateful for
Magic and miracles were everywhere
I stopped
I believed in the possibility of all
I embraced what life sent my way
My footsteps were not perfect nor unfailing
But I stood back up and continued
I stopped
Pulled myself back and remembered
Tried again from what I knew now
For it always begins from now and not then
And I never stop living consciously
