Signs of Life

Nandini Ramanathan '23

come alive

everything is possible

contort newton’s laws to suit your own

deity of everything unpossessed, unconquered, pristine

transcendent the moment your foot touches the earth

fuck gravity. you rule it now.

 

you lived, but you weren’t alive

until you found this again

and suddenly, it’s effortless

the pain goes away

 

They call it the sweet spot

the high

but it’s so much more

it’s life in an instant

it’s the universe coalesced into a single point

it’s happiness

it’s humanity

it’s art.

live for this, because what else could compare?
